2016 U.S. Health Freedom Congress

Thirty health freedom organizations will gather from July 31 to August 2, in Northfield, to discuss state and national issues surrounding health freedom. The summit is open to everyone through registration.

The Meet and Greet on Sunday evening will include the showing of I Stand for Health Freedom videos from the 2015 Congress opener, presentations from two lawyers on their experiences and a presentation by a local farmer on the issues he faces. Monday evening, following the Congress activities, there will be a presentation by Clifford Carnicom on geoengineering and a showing of the movie Vaxxed, followed by a Q&A session with Andrew Wakefield.

The event will culminate on Tuesday with a keynote speech by Ronnie Cummins, co-founder and international director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and its Mexico affiliate, Via Organica. Cummins has been a writer and activist since the 1960s, with extensive experience in public education, grassroots mobilization and marketplace pressure campaigns. Over the past two decades he has served as director of U.S. and international campaigns dealing with sustainable agriculture issues, including food safety, genetic engineering, factory farming and global warming.

Health freedom is the goal of many organizations and countless individuals, and the U.S. Health Freedom Congress aims to bring them together in one place to enhance their progress. Some of the issues discussed last year were GMO labeling, keeping organic standards meaningful, forced vaccinations and freedom to practice the healing arts.

The event is hosted by the National Health Freedom Coalition (NHFC), a nonprofit based in Minnesota. “We all want to protect the right of people to have what they need to be well, and that sometimes means fighting for our right to choose our own healing path, our right to have accurate information, our right to decline treatments or to avoid toxic substances,” states Diane Miller, JD, NHFC co-founder and executive director.

Cost: $25 Keynote Speech Tuesday night (no dinner); $60 Keynote Speech with Organic Banquet Dinner; $200 for entry to all events on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (includes food for all days). Location: St. Olaf College, Northfield. For more information, call 608-295-3827, email [email protected] or visit
