What are the risks from genetically engineered fish to the people and environments of the Pacific Northwest?

CAGJ tackled this question head-on with their short film Salmon People. Now Town Hall Seattle joins forces with CAGJ to screen this powerful new film and call together a panel of indigenous and advocacy perspectives—all key activists working on Northwest Native food security and justice in the Pacific Northwest. Sit in to hear from the voices across the Pacific Northwest who are speaking out about the risks of genetically engineered fish.
