A coalition of farm organizations and their allies around the country are circulating the farmer statement on the climate crisis, viewable in the form here. This statement has been put together by the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), an alliance of grassroots organizations that advocates for federal policy reform to advance the sustainability of agriculture, food systems, natural resources, and rural communities. Check out their comprehensive and impressive Grassroots Guide to Federal Farm and Food Programs, here.
Don’t be a rotten egg — please consider adding your name! The statement will be made public and sent to Congressional and USDA leaders. Your name and contact details will not be shared beyond listing your name, farm, town, and state on the letter, which will be shared publicly.
