Learn how to help OEFFA counter the special interest influence that large commodity groups and biotech companies have over our decision-makers and demand policies that work in the interest of the family farmers who feed us every day while protecting our air, water, and soil.
The “Advocacy: What, Why, and How,” webinar will start on September 21 at 6:30 p.m.
OEFFA Policy Program Coordinator Amalie Lipstreu will explain:
- What advocacy is and why it’s important for farmers and citizens to be engaged in the policy process;
- How you can be an effective voice for change and make a difference on the food and farm issues you care about—even if you don’t have a lot of time;
- Techniques for successfully communicating with legislators;
- How to make a quick but impactful phone call to a legislator; and
- Resources and opportunities to help you get involved.
