Now that you’ve cast your ballot in the 2012 election, it’s time to vote again – only this time for a better food and farm system! As you know, Congress left town in August without acting on the 2012 Farm Bill.
The House and Senate come back to DC next week for their “lame duck” post-election session, and this is our last chance to call for a farm bill this year – one that invests in the future of healthy farms, food, and people; protects our natural resources; and makes long-overdue reforms to farm subsidies and levels the playing field for family farmers.
KRC is joining with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) and its member organizations to urge Congress to act by the end of the year. You can help by signing the petition via this linkand joining thousands of others across the country in calling Congress on a national coordinated call-in day on November 15.
By signing your name to this petition, you’ll let Congress know that your vote is going for an equitable, sustainable 21st century farm bill that:
- Invests in healthy farms, food, and people – NOT processed junk
- Protects the livelihoods of small-scale family farmers – NOT the profits of mega-farms and industrial ag
- Rewards farmers for their environmental stewardship – NOT the neglect of our air, soil, and water.
Thank you for all you do.
