Our private offices are situated on three beautiful, secluded acres in the small town of Pittsboro, located in central North Carolina. Suffused by natural light with large windows, quiet individual offices offer an ideal space for clearing the mind and focusing energy. Passive solar technology and daylighting are used throughout the office.
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.
