Can we get Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller off university campuses?
These two women think so—if enough college students on campuses across the U.S. get involved.
In May, thanks to the inspiring work of two University of California (UC) students—Mackenzie Feldman and Bridget Gustafson—UC President Janet Napolitano declared a moratorium on the use of Monsanto-Bayer’s glyphosate-based herbicides at all 10 UC campuses.
Napolitano also set up an Herbicide Task Force to consider the possibility of phasing out these toxins altogether.
In November, the Herbicide Task Force is expected to make its recommendations to President Napolitano who will then have to decide whether to leave her glyphosate ban in place when she retires from her post next year.
It’s time for us all to speak up in favor of kicking Monsanto-Bayer off campus permanently at the University of California—and eventually, off campuses across the nation.
