Stand up for dairy farmers in Madison, WI

MattOn Friday, June 25, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Justice will hold a hearing in Madison, Wisconsin on corporate concentration in the dairy industry. This is a landmark occasion and we encourage you to attend to stand for family farmers and defend our food system from corporate control!

To pre-register for the workshop, visit: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/V3FHXPY

You can also join us the night before at a people's anti-trust town hall meeting, hosted by Farm Aid partner Family Farm Defenders, to ensure that the voices of family farmers and consumers are heard loud and clear!

On Thursday, June 24 at 6:30 pm, tell the government to stand up for family dairy farmers and consumers — not corporate agribusiness giants!

Join the town hall meeting to hear from dairy farmers and community leaders and add your voice to demand that the government take immediate action to break up corporate control of our food system.

  1. It's frightening to see what is being done today to imperil the production of food in our country. Seems no one will care about the farmer until the grocery store shelves are empty. One important way we can act to ensure an abundant future food supply is for NON-FARMING folks to join in the efforts to support local farmers. EVERYONE EATS SO EVERYONE SHOULD CARE ABOUT, AND TAKE ACTION TO PRESERVE, FARMING IN OUR COUNTRY.
