Registration OPEN for Virtual Farmer Town Hall
September is here, and Farm Aid is only a week out. While many of us are not able to not be there to celebrate in person, hopefully we can at least see each other in zoom-land. As part of this year’s festivities Farm Aid is organizing a pre-concert, virtual Farmer Town Hall Friday, September 24th, from 12-4 pm CT / 11am-3pm MT,to give farmers, ranchers and allies a chance to meet with policymakers, share your stories, ask your questions and discuss the changes we need to build more resilient, equitable food systems here in South Dakota and accross the country.
With pressing issues like corporate concentration and consolidation, debt relief, racial equity and climate change dominating headlines and the countryside alike, we are hoping to use this opportunity to engage in a productive and thoughtful dialogue between farmers, partners, and policymakers to tackle some of the most pressing and complex issues facing our country. (Farm Aid)
The Farmer Town Hall will be an ENTIRELY VIRTUAL event, held over Zoom, to ensure that all voices are heard and included in these policy conversations. The virtual Farmer Town Hall will take place Friday, September 24th, from 12-4 pm CT / 11am-3pm MT.
