Call on Congress to Invest in Regenerative and Just Agriculture
Congress is currently in the middle of negotiating a legislative package that will invest in the nation’s infrastructure to create jobs and help advance a just transition to a sustainable 21st century economy. The plan for this infrastructure package laid out by the Biden Administration in the America Jobs Plan is ambitious but only has limited funding for agriculture and food systems. That’s why ASBC’s Regenerative Agriculture and Justice working group developed this memo calling on Congress to include funding for a variety of programs that will facilitate the group’s goals.
Congress and the Biden Administration hope to pass the infrastructure package by July, so now is the time to act. Send a message to your representative and senator asking them to invest in a more regenerative and just food system and pointing them towards ASBC’s memo for specific ideas on where funding is the most needed.
