U.S. farm policies directly affect human health, food security, climate change, corporate corruption, racial injustice, immigration, environmental pollution, cultural identity and more.
On Friday, March 8, 2019, we’re joining with GMO Free Pennsylvania to bring prominent leaders in organic farming research and education to Capitol Hill to brief members of Congress on food and farm policies that provide solutions for every community.
TAKE ACTION: Please use the form on this page to send an email invitation to your members of Congress. Then, if you have time, follow up with phone calls. Capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121.
We need your help. With 435 members of the House of Representatives and 100 Senators, it’s impossible for our lone staff person in Washington, D.C. to personally invite each office. Plus your Representatives and Senators prefer to hear from their own constituents, not national organizations.
Your Senators and member of Congress are most likely to attend this important briefing if they get a personal invitation from you.
And please, if you’re in the D.C. area, join your representatives at the briefing.
If you would like to support this briefing with a donation to help pay for travel and hotel expenses for speakers, please make a donation to OCA's sister organization, Regeneration International.
You know that switching to organic and pasture-based agriculture is what we need to do to feed the world and cool the planet—because healthy soil can both provide abundant food, and also draw down and sequester carbon.
But many members of Congress don’t.
Please help us get your members of Congress to this important briefing, so we can ask them to enact policies that will help level the playing field for farmers who grow nutrient-rich food in ways that protect, not harm, the environment—so those farmers can compete fairly in a market dominated by industrial factory farms, and subsidized by taxpayers.
