They all stem from an imbalance of power between corporate interests and people. [00:13] To change this imbalance, we need to do the long-term and difficult work of building political power to make meaningful changes in people’s lives. [00:21] Choose democracy and choose action. We invite you to this fight, to reclaim our food system and to make government work for the people. [00:34] WENONAH HAUTER: We must work towards a bold vision, one rooted in justice and equity. [00:45] A society where all people have clean water, healthy food, a good union job and a livable climate. END
