We live in a complex and globalized world, and family farmers need a voice on the international stage that speaks truth to the corporate power that is undermining our livelihoods.
The climate and financial crises farmers now face suggest that it’s time the US government practice sound public policy and do everything possible to promote agroecology as the best hope to address corporate concentration, protect the earth, provide for rural communities, and achieve food sovereignty.
U.S. agriculture policy needs to prioritize agroecology and ensure farmers’ rights to seeds, safe water, and pricing structures that ensure farm viability.
A transition to agroecology is necessary to ensure an environmentally sustainable and prosperous future, and we urge the US government to support this process within the CFS.
