The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the inequity, fragility and failures of our food and agricultural system. Those outcomes are not inevitable but rather, have been shaped by public policy, or the lack thereof. If there has ever been a time to lean in and fund movements to turn the tide on public policy, this is the time. The next crisis could very well be triggered by climate change. We must do better. Funders must have a collaborative effort around federal climate, food, and agriculture policy if we want to win structural and systemic change.
Please join us online for our 2020 Policy Outlook and Strategy Series: Climate, Agriculture, Farm Bill 2023. We look forward to engaging in discussion and strategy with you!
This is the third pre-conference session of the 2020 Policy Outlook and Strategy Series, view entire program details here.
Collaboration for System Change: Why the Farm Bill Matters
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 – 10 am PT / 11 am MT / 12 pm CT / 1 pm ET (90 minutes)
Funders must have a collaborative effort around farm bill if we want to win structural agriculture and food system change. This webinar will focus on what is to be gained, why it matters for your region and priorities, for racial and economic justice, for overall structural reform. In addition, we will once again be joined by policy experts from Alliance for Justice to learn specifically on what you can do as funders around the Farm Bill, including how to fund policy work on Farm Bill, as well as engage directly.
