Endorsements: Candidates

New candidate endorsements coming in 2022

Our very first candidate endorsement, Deb Haaland, is now the U.S. Secretary of the Interior. As one of the first women Native American members of the U.S. Congress, Rep. Haaland worked tirelessly to support tribal and family agriculture across the country. The legislation she championed, such as the Climate Stewardship Act and Farmers Bill of Rights, has the potential to restructure our agriculture system, break the grip of transnational agribusiness, and invest in our farmers and ranchers.
