RAFI brought 10 farmers to Capitol Hill to debut a preview version of our documentary that features their stories, Under Contract. Farmers also met with their legislators to demand fairness and urge their support of the Farmer Fair Practice Rules, aka GIPSA rules.
So far, 2017 has been a whirlwind year for our Contract Agriculture Reform Program. We held two premieres of our documentary film, Under Contract: Farmers and the Fine Print, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC and at Anthology Film Archives in New York City, and we later held screenings across the country that reached more than 500 people. We’re still riding that wave of initial success to expand our program and our impact.
