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!”
