Action alert! We have now entered a critical phase in our long-running efforts to reform USDA regulations to ensure fairness for farmers. Please join us in submitting comments to the USDA by JUNE 12th!
Sonny Perdue is taking on a critical role at a critical time for American farmers. Net farm income is estimated to have dropped 28% since 2014, and across America farmers are feeling the strain of higher debt loads and lower prices, while struggling to stay viable in uncompetitive markets controlled by corporate giants.
Over the past 18 months we have seen an election that has divided our nation and our communities.

We encourage everyone to continue to reflect on these realities, but we also want to turn our attention to the future.
