- Sonja Trom Eayrs | Lawyer & farmer’s daughter
- Tim Culver | Environmental lawyer, Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy
- Jeff Johnson | Professor of Philosophy, St. Catherine University
- Chris Petersen | Independent pig farmer & Regional representative for the national nonprofit, Socially Responsible Agricultural Project
All Ramsey County residents interested in the health, safety and security of their families, homes, environment, natural resources, personal finances and local economy encouraged to attend.
“What better way to learn about the devastating consequences that these hog operations have on a community than to hear it directly from those individuals that are living it?” – Janelle Engstrom, founder of Lake Region Concerned Citizens
