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:
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!”
