Take Action: Relief Should Support Farm Families – Not Big Ag

This week, the USDA is deciding how to spend the more than $23.5 BILLION earmarked for farmers impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. As usual, USDA has already had discussions with Corporate Agriculture representatives on how to spend this money, trying to divvy up money that was set aside for small, independent family farmers.

We have an opportunity to stand up for family farms. We’re encouraging everyone to email their Congressional representatives and ask for help. Congress can direct USDA on how to spend these funds and ensure the money reaches our struggling family farmers.

RAFI-USA staff are currently working remotely. As we plan for how COVID-19 will change both how we do our work, and what work needs to be done, please know that we are still here. Our Farmer Hotline (866-586-6746) will operate from Monday-Saturday from 9am to 6pm. Stay tuned for more updates and information.
