This week, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to advocate for major investments in climate-friendly agriculture, and to support debt relief for small farmers. Contact your legislator now!
RAFI-USA wholeheartedly endorses the Relief for America’s Small Farmers Act, re-introduced by Sen. Gillibrand, which provides debt relief for small farms with FSA loans. We urge you to take action today and ask your legislators to cosponsor this critical bill and support its inclusion in any future legislative package.
We need your help to secure a boost in funding for the National Organic Program and other programs to strengthen organic enforcement, crack down on fraud, boost organic research, and expand organic data collection. The House Organic Caucus is also requesting funding to fix the organic certification cost share program shortfall – funding for this program was slashed in 2020.
With the 2020 election nearing, the U.S. is in danger of experiencing political violence, which is sadly nothing new for our country. In this blog, we discuss how faith leaders and communities can work together to take concrete, proactive steps to both prevent and if necessary respond, to political violence.
