We Need a Hero
President-elect Joe Biden’s victory is not the end of our work—it’s just the beginning.
We invite you to join us for an exclusive webinar that asks a vitally important first question: Isn’t it about time a real organic regenerative farmer took the helm in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)?
We can’t create change by blindly following the same old corporate, Big Ag business-as-usual path.
Radically changing our food and farming system for the better will be possible only if we have a champion of organic and regenerative agriculture leading the USDA.
President-elect Biden’s current top pick for Secretary of Agriculture is reported to be Heidi Heitkamp, who has a history of anti-environment votes and support for corporate agribusiness.
We believe he can, and must, do better. That’s why we’ve put together a panel of experts ready to discuss the best (and worst) potential candidates for Secretary of Agriculture—and how you can get involved.
You’ll hear from:
• John Boyd, founder and president of National Black Farmers Association, who was considered for Secretary of Agriculture in President Barack Obama’s cabinet
• Joe Maxwell, co-founder of Family Farm Action Alliance; former Missouri state legislator and former Missouri lieutenant governor
• Dr. Francis Thicke, regenerative dairy farmer and top contender for Iowa Secretary of Agriculture in 2010
• Chloë Waterman, program manager for Friends of the Earth’s Climate-Friendly Food Purchasing Program
Join us Tuesday, November 17, 7:00 p.m. CST for a 1-hour panel discussion titled: “We Need a Secretary of Agriculture Who Supports Organic Regenerative Agriculture!”
