Raising the Profile of Food and Farming Systems in National Elections
December 3, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am PST
Sponsored by the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders, the John Merck Fund, and Animal Agriculture Reform Collaborative
National elections grab the media spotlight, thereby elevating the profile of many issues. For food, farming and fisheries systems, elections can provide the opportunity to create a national dialogue, shift the narrative, build power where members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees sit, and develop community-based leadership at every level to lead us towards long-term change.
Join us to learn from grassroots, advocacy organizations who are engaging strategies to elevate food and farming issues at the national level during the 2020 elections. Speakers will give an overview of what is happening across some key electoral states and the changes they are seeing now as compared to previous election cycles.
Attendees will get a brief overview of the legal framework of the strategies outlined from the Alliance for Justice, and we will have time for Q&A.
Registration for this webinar is limited to funders only.
Funders are considered those organizations using grantmaking or investments as a core strategy to fulfill their mission and who make grants or invest more than $50,000 annually.
