It’s now or never for the 2012 Farm Bill – speak out today!

Now that you’ve cast your ballot in the 2012 election, it’s time to vote again – only this time, for a better food and farm system for our nation!
By signing your name to this petition, you’ll let Congress know that your vote is going for an equitable, sustainable 21st century farm bill that:

  • Invests in the future of healthy farms, food, and people
  • Protects our precious air, soil, and water
  • Reforms farm subsidies and levels the playing field
Congress returns to the Hill in just one week, and when they return, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition will be in DC - with thousands of signatures in hand - telling them we can’t end the year without a 2012 Farm Bill that invests in an equitable, sustainable future for our food system and our farmers.  

Can Congress still finish a Farm Bill this year? YES!

PS.  Help us reach 50,000 signatures!  Thousands people have already signed on to support an equitable, sustainable 21st century 2012 farm bill.  Share this message with your friends, family, and colleagues – we need YOU to help us reach 50,000!
