Do you care about what’s happening with our food system, but you’re not sure where to start?
Ever wondered which elected official you needed to call to take action on an issue or what to say to the person on the other end of the phone line when you do call?
Already done some activism work and want to learn more about how to be really effective and make a significant impact?
If any of these describe you, then check out the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance’s two-day intensive training on how to be an effective citizen activist!
Our system only works when people become involved. And every person counts. FARFA regularly lobbies at both the state and federal level, and an essential part of our mission is providing educational resources for people affected by government farm and food policies, empowering them to speak up on behalf of themselves.
