Endorsements​: 117th Congress

The changes we seek require bold ideas. 

We endorse legislation that lifts up our nation’s farmers, ranchers, and rural communities. Any bill we champion will effect real, transformational change toward a more just and sustainable system that honors the diversity of our nation and safeguards the future of our rural communities. 

The below bills may either contain one or more of the policy provisions developed by our partner Farm Action, or they may advance a key policy priority.
