Native Farm Bill Luncheon
The Farm Bill is the second largest piece of legislation passed by Congress. It impacts federal program funding and policy in conservation, agriculture, rural development, nutrition (FDPIR/ SNAP), and more. The Native Farm Bill Coalition was established to provide a united voice to lawmakers so Tribal priorities are heard and implemented. As a result of these efforts, over 60 Tribal-focused provisions were included in the 2019 Farm Bill. Let's keep the momentum going. Join us for an update from Carly Hotvedt of Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative, the policy partner of the Native Farm Bill Coalition.
