***ACTION ALERT***

Farm Food Voices DC 2007

National Grassroots Small-farm Lobby Day, February 14th

[No experience needed!] 

Joel Salatin, Speaker

Anti-NAIS, pro small/sustainable/independent agriculture

 

Under the banner of

The National Independent Consumers and Farmers Advocates Fund

(NICFA Fund http://www.nicfa.org)

 

WHAT: Grassroots lobbying, and legislative reception, for small farmers and supporters from all over the country

WHERE: Washington, DC

WHEN: Wednesday, February 14th, 2007, 12:00 noon

WHY: So legislators can meet small, sustainable producers and the consumers who depend on them, and hear their message.

 

Most federal legislators don’t know we exist, or take us seriously. We have to change that.

 

            Under the auspices of the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Advocates Fund (NICFA Fund), Farm Food Voices, DC 2007 will bring America’s farmers and the consumers who depend on them from all over the country to DC to meet legislators, explain to them why NAIS would destroy sustainable agriculture, the economies and communities these small farms sustain, and the foods millions of consumers depend on. We will provide Talking Points for grassroots lobbyists and information packets for legislators.

            Weston A. Price Foundation members in the DC area will prepare a nourishing Traditional Luncheon style reception, with food sampling, for legislators and grassroots lobbyists. (We’ll meet in one of the Congressional office buildings. See http://www.nicfa.org for room closer to date).
