At this critical moment in our shared history, we at RAFI reaffirm our commitment to stand with and fight for those who face injustice, exploitation, or discrimination. We condemn violence and intimidation, as most recently displayed in Charlottesville, Virginia and other cities across our country. We stand in solidarity with all people and organizations across the country that work to oppose bigotry and exploitation.

Before, After, and Beyond Charlottesville





For the first time in a full-length documentary, farmers tell their stories and experts reveal how the corporate agricultural production model pits farmer against farmer. Join us as we travel across the American South and to Southern India to understand what's happening to farmers living under contract and what we can do to change our food system for the better.

Watch Under Contract: Farmers and the Fine Print



The consensus is that times have changed in recent years, but our values haven’t. We believe in a world where everyone has the opportunity to succeed. Our nation was founded on that principle, and we’ve worked hard to make it a reality as we build a society that values everyone equally. As an agricultural nonprofit organization, we work everyday to make sure those fundamental principles hold true for thousands of family farmers. But we know first hand that our work is far from over.
