These days, a handful of multinational monopoly corporations control our food and agriculture system. Insulated from consequences by abundant economic resources and political influence, their abusive practices jeopardize the economic viability of independent farmers, ranchers, and small businesses; lock farmers into unfair contracts; hollow out our rural communities; suppress workers’ wages; and rob consumers of choice.
Corporate monopolies continue to accrue power and influence with no apparent consequences.
Below are some campaigns to establish balance, equity, and resilience in our agriculture and food system.
In mere minutes, you can help us shift power and influence toward family-owned and independent farms and away from harmful corporate monopolies.

To help our attorneys succeed in court, we need to hear from you! We are actively soliciting stories of how individual farmers and ranchers have grappled with abusive meatpacker practices. All stories will be held confidential throughout and after the court process.
For too long, the system has consolidated economic and political power into the hands of a few corporations and individuals that lead them.
