The ALIADI/Biosafety Alliance is a grassroots network of activists in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. For 10 years, we have been organizing conferences and launching environmental campaigns. Farmers, environmental activists, and farmworker organizations came together to found the Soil Not Oil Coalition in 2015. The main focus is to educate about soil solutions to climate change by highlighting the importance of agro-ecological farming practices, and addressing and supporting environmental justice in all levels. The annual Soil Not Oil Conferences have had 100’s of speakers and the information was broadcast in Spanish and English on radio and live video to hundred of thousands of people around the globe.
