Farm Bill Update

By Catholic Rural Life on September 19, 2018

Ethical Food and Agriculture

Over the summer we have worked with our partners—the USCCB, Catholic Charities, Catholic Relief Services, and St. Vincent De Paul—to advocate for a fair and just Farm Bill on behalf of farmers, ranchers and all who live in rural America. We also work with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition to send out periodic alerts and updates. The House and the Senate each passed a separate version of the farm bill, and now the farm bill is in conference committee with members of both the House and Senate.

See the letter we have endorsed with our Catholic partners.

Please contact your representatives in the House and Senate to voice your concerns for a fair and just farm bill. For helpful talking points, see our blog “Farm Bill: Key Talking Points”.
