We need a better Farm Bill. This year.

Will you take five minutes TODAY to call your Representative? We need a 2012 Farm Bill that is fiscally responsible, fair and sustainable. Legislation that supports healthy food, people and soil, while re-building local economies is absolutely within our reach — if we come together to demand it.

Calling your Representative is easy, and it is one of the best ways to hold them accountable. Here’s the information you need to make a call:

Instructions: Political insiders tell us that one phone call is worth dozens of emails. Please do both!

1) Zip: Enter your zip code below to find phone numbers for your Representative.

2) Call: Phone each Representative and make the points listed below.

3) Click:
Then click “submit” to send the followup email, and invite your friends to do the same.

Tell the person who answers that you’d like to share a personal message with your legislator, such as this:

“Hello, my name is _____. I’m a constituent and a voter (and tell ‘em if you’re a farmer!). I’m calling to ask Representative ______ to help get the 2012 Farm Bill finished, and to ensure that critical conservation funding does not get cut, that support for beginning farmers and hungry families both remain priorities, and that crop insurance subsidies remain tied to conservation compliance. Thank you!”
