Join us to hear from the National Young Farmers Coalition (NYFC) about their 2023 Farm Bill Platform. Vanessa García Polanco, NYFC Policy Campaigns Co-Director will walk us through the coalition’s policy priorities, particularly the call for equitable access to land, and help us understand where funders can engage and support these efforts.
According to NYFC’s 2022 National Young Farmer Survey, 59% of young farmers named finding affordable land to buy as very or extremely challenging, and 65% of BIPOC farmers ranked it as very or extremely challenging. Over half of all respondents said that they currently need more access to land, whether to buy or lease. As this webinar will demonstrate, the 2023 Farm Bill presents a critical opportunity to address this need.
