This is an important moment in history: as the climate crisis deepens, Congress is preparing to take significant action on climate change.
We have an incredible opportunity to see that climate policy lifts up and supports the work sustainable farmers are doing to build soil health, sequester carbon, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and make their farms resilient to the changing climate.
Will you take action today to support the Agriculture Resilience Act?
This bill, introduced in the House and Senate today, will harness the power of agriculture to draw down carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil.
With urgent action now, including the investments and policy reforms in the ARA, we can meet our climate goals and dramatically improve our food system while engaging farmers in making the critical changes necessary for our future.
You can help, and it takes only moments - please encourage your Congressional delegation to cosponsor the bill.
Step 1: Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
Step 2: Leave a message for your Senators and Member of Congress like this:
"Hi, my name is ____ and I’m a constituent and a ____ [farmer, parent, concerned citizen, etc.]. As your constituent, I care about climate change! The Agriculture Resilience Act (ARA) will support the transition to sustainable and climate-friendly food and agriculture systems, while setting ambitious yet realistic goals for agriculture to be part of the solution to the climate crisis. Will you consider cosponsoring the ARA? Thank you!"
Step 3: Reply to this email to let us know you called and how it went!
Thanks for taking action and happy Earth Day!
