Dear Raw Milk Lovers:
The Food Network is working on a show about raw milk and how it has changed people’s lives. As a part of this, they want to show their viewers the political side of the raw milk battle. To do so they are hosting a raw milk rally and would like to invite you to demonstrate your support for raw milk, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, which will be filmed as part of a documentary about the growing consumer demand for raw milk.
This will be a chance to tell your personal story on national television, about how raw milk has helped you and your family achieve better health or heal from chronic disease. Or, why you feel it should be an available choice to all who want it. The main purpose of this event is to help spread the word via our stories to be aired on the Food Network.

Richard Morris, Author of A Life Unburdened
Liz Reitzig, President of Maryland Independent Consumers and Farmers Association
