Ask Senators to Amend 2012 Farm Bill

As President Harry Truman once said, "In the long view, no nation is healthier than its children or more prosperous than its farmers."  

Please join me in asking our senators to support amendments to the 2012 Farm Bill, which will begin to fix our broken food system.  Highlights of the amended bill include: enforcing country-of-origin labeling, enabling local farmers and businesses to compete against agribusiness monopolies and increasing access to healthy foods.  (Visit www.foodandwaterwatch.org/food/farm-bill-2012/fair-farm-rules for further information.)  

Use this link to ask your senators to support amendments that cut crop insurance subsidies and redirect funds to programs that support healthy diets, the environment and local farmers.
