Silent Spring in Benicia…What’s Next?

Hosted by the Progressive Democrats of Benicia

Come out to hear about the risks of glyphosate (Roundup) and efforts to address its risks in our local community.

Speakers from the City of Benicia Parks & Rec and BUSD will discuss the use of herbicides and pesticides on city and school property.

Kat Furey will discuss the health risks associated with glyphosate. Furey works with Baum Hedlund Aristei Goldman Law Firm, which represents Roundup–related non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma clients. She is also the media outreach and education leader for the California Guild and Sacramento Community Guild.

Mackenzie Feldman of the Herbicide Free UC Campaign will speak on the recent decision by UC President Janet Napolitano’s decision to provisionally ban the use of glyphosate.

A Question and Answer period will follow.
