Doreen has served on the R-CALF USA Animal ID Committee for several years, is the principal researcher and speaker for the Ozarks PRC and was appointed the position of Director of Research for the National Independent Consumer and Farmers Association because of her dedication to the mission statement of the group and her ability to relate complex and unfamiliar material in a concise and meaningful manner.
Thoughts on the times in which we live:
Never before in the history of mankind has there been such ability to surveil and control the most basic of human rights...our right to eat and produce food of our choice. Food is treated as a controlled substance by the FDA and USDA and we cannot allow them to continue to pursue their control paradigm without resistance. We must secure our right to food freedom. Our lives, the lives of our children, and the idea of freedom itself depend upon it. Without food, we cannot be free.
