Alexis Baden-Mayer is a lawyer and activist who has worked since 2005 as the Political Director of the Organic Consumers Association, a network of more than 1 million activists committed to creating a healthy, just, democratic and regenerative food system. Alexis is a key organizer of some of OCA’s most popular campaigns, including “Planting Peace.” Alexis isn’t afraid to put her body on the line to call attention to the crisis in our food system. In 2014, the US Health Freedom Congress awarded Alexis a Health Freedom Award for direct actions she’s taken that resulted in her arrest, including shutting down the National Organic Standards Board meeting to protest the weakening of organic standards and entering the White House grounds to deliver a petition to First Lady Michelle Obama in support of GMO labels, one of Barack Obama’s unfulfilled campaign pledges. Alexis’s proudest moment as an activist came in 2016 when Bernie Sanders tweeted a CSPAN video clip of her dumping “Monsanto Money” on the Senate floor to protest the corrupting influence of money in politics.

  1. What a hot and critical topic! I will not be able to attend unfortunately. Will this be recorded and viewable another way?

    Thanks,
