Kavin Senapathy and Dave Sutherland co-founded March Against Myths (MAMyths) in 2015 with Dr. Karl Haro von Mogel to wield science activism in the name of social justice, especially when it comes to “GMOs.” For too long, myth mongers have saturated minds with pseudoscience myths that instill unfounded fear, and fuel a lobby that keeps technologies out the hands of those who need them. This hurts farmers, the needy, consumers, and the environment. Senapathy and Sutherland will discuss GMOs, MAMyths, and where they go from here.
