Passing this opportunity to let Congress know we want a fair Farm Bill.
have less than one week to stop the anti-environmental provisions of the House
Farm Bill in final negotiations with the Senate, which will shape the next five
years of food, farming, agricultural and environmental policy.
Tell your Members of Congress
to urge House and Senate Conferees to pass a Farm Bill free of
anti-environmental riders. With increasing assaults on federal environmental
protections from the Trump administration, time is of the essence and we cannot
afford to lose bedrock environmental safeguards that regulate toxics and ensure
clean, safe food, and drinking water!
A clean bill would promote
sustainable agriculture, and support local communities, without making
egregious cuts to funding for local food systems, weakening the Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Programs (SNAP) designed to curb hunger, and trampling state
and county rights -- including the right to regulate pesticides!
The House Farm Bill is full of anti-environmental provisions that would
continue support for big corporate Caged Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and
even gut the Clean Water Act, log away our national forests, harm conservation
policies and launch a total attack on the Endangered Species Act.
Tell Congress to keep toxic,
anti-environmental riders out of the Farm Bill now! We need legislation that
puts local farms, communities, and environment first.
