Working on a farm bill campaign in your state? We have created a free, downloadable, unbranded advocacy toolkit packed with resources for a successful campaign! We hope this free toolkit will be used and shared widely by anyone pursuing a fair, inclusive, and competitive food and agriculture system. Feel free to copy, paste, download, edit, and distribute all or portions of these documents.
These policy recommendations from our political affiliate Farm Action Fund support a shift in agricultural production toward higher-value food crops like produce, legumes, and whole grains. They were released as a companion to our research revealing the number of acres we’d need to convert to these crops in order to balance the United States’ agricultural trade deficit.
The farm bill can seem like a vast and at times bewildering maze of legislation, so we’ve created a straightforward guide of concise, concrete, and actionable policy recommendations within each of our four categories of change for the farm bill. If Congress acted on these recommendations, they could transform our food and farm system and achieve our vision of a fair, inclusive, and competitive food system. For free, downloadable, unbranded resources for a successful campaign, check out our Fair Farm Bill Advocacy Toolkit.
Farm Action’s transition plan to the Biden-Harris Administration details recommendations for the administration to successfully revitalize rural communities, and was endorsed by 16 food, farm, and rural organizations. The administration incorporated key components of this guide into its Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy.
We send our subscribers only the most important breaking news and meaningful opportunities to break up Big Ag. In mere minutes, you can help build a more fair food system.
