Congress is betting on no one paying attention to the Farm Bill. Let’s show them we’re paying attention.
Our nation’s food and farm policy, the 2008 Farm Bill, has officially expired leaving critical programs high and dry with no funding. Can Congress still finish a farm bill this year? YES! Will they do it? Only if they hear from us.
There is a short window of time for Congress to finish the bill when they return to DC after Election Day. We need YOU and other farmers and advocates across the country to tell them loud and clear: we need an equitable, sustainable 2012 Farm Bill!
Michael Fields has launched a major grassroots effort in collaboration with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition and allies across the nation to make our voices heard. Sign onto the citizens’ petition today – and mark your calendar for a national day of action on November 15!
Sign your name and tell Congress we need a 2012 Farm Bill that:
- Invests in the future of healthy farms, food, and people
- Protects our precious air, soil, and water
- Reforms farm subsidies and levels the playing field
