Last March, hundreds of farmers rallied in Washington, D.C. at the Farmers for Climate Action: Rally for Resilience to demand action on climate change, racial justice, and strengthened communities in the Farm Bill. This week, we are mobilizing again to ask that Congress act on climate in the Farm Bill. For links to tell your legislators to act on climate in the farm bill! click HERE.
Another way to engage in Farmers for Climate Action Week is to post on your social media about your farmer climate story, using the hashtag #farmersforclimateaction. What are you doing on your farm or in your community to address the climate crisis? Why is it important to you to prioritize racial justice in the farm bill? What would a fair food system look like to you? Tag your Members of Congress (find their social media handles here) to level-up your impact!
