Tell Congress: Co-Sponsor the ARA
The next farm bill is being written now, and we want to see resources like funding, research, and risk management for farmers and ranchers to implement climate-friendly practices. The provisions and investments needed in the 2023 Farm Bill to ensure the long-term viability of our farms and food system are outlined in the Agriculture Resilience Act (ARA). We need members of Congress to co-sponsor this bill.
Can you make a quick call or send an email today to your members of Congress?
Look up the contact information for your your senators and representative by entering your zip code on this page.
Leave a phone message or email for your legislators like this:
“Hi, my name is ____. I’m a constituent and a ____ [farmer, parent, concerned citizen, etc.]. As your constituent, I care about climate change impacts on agriculture and on my community. Farmers need support to be part of the climate solution. Shifting to climate-friendly agricultural practices will require continued research, robust technical assistance, and financial incentives to reduce up-front costs. Please support climate investments in the farm bill by co-sponsoring the Agriculture Resilience Act."
(If you like, you may add in a brief personal statement about climate impacts). Then thank them, and you’re done!
Once you've made a call or emailed your members of Congress, tell us about how it went here.
