This month we’ll write our Senators to insist on a more climate-friendly agriculture that responds to social problems including land loss, racism, unemployment and hunger. We will urge Senators to support legislation that would make progress on both climate change and social ills, such as the Justice for Black Farmers Act and the Climate Stewardship Act.
Join in writing Senators Grassley and Ernst to urge them to seize this opportunity to promote more resilient and climate-friendly agriculture and, at the same time, redress historic injustices like the loss of farmland by Black farmers. We’ll urge them to support legislation that provides assistance necessary to Black farmers to successfully farm in ways that reduce emissions sequester carbon, and promote soil health. We’ll also urge them to support the Climate Stewardship Act, a bill that provides nature-based solutions to remove heat-trapping carbon dioxide from our atmosphere while creating living-wage jobs.
