A Better Farm Bill: How to Engage Your Elected Officials

Date: Sun, March 25
Time: 2:25 PM - 3:10 PM

As Congress works to write and pass a new farm bill, 2018 is a critical time for farmers, consumers, and activists to engage with their Members of Congress. In this session, I will give a brief summary of the National Young Farmers Coalition's approach to the farm bill - and the broader coalition we're forming - before diving into tactics and strategies that make for effective advocacy. We'll cover how to get a meeting, how to have an effective meeting, what makes for the best messaging and 'ask', and other ways to influence our elected officials during this critical time.
