Scott Marlow is the Senior Policy Specialist at RAFI. He is a strong advocate for small and mid-scale, sustainable farmers on topics like credit access, disaster relief assistance, financial counseling, and crop insurance. Marlow will discuss the 2018 Farm Bill process, what’s included in the bill, and its impacts on food security and equity. Attendees will learn how they can translate their stories into political action around agriculture and food policy.
RAFI will host the Equity at the Table Speaker Series in locations across North Carolina from March through August 2018. The series is designed for people who are working in the intersection of equity and food security and for those with the desire to think more critically about equity in their work and volunteerism. RAFI invites people of faith, farmers, activists, and journalists to come hear these perspectives. FREE and open to the public
