Black History Month: Honoring the Contributions of Black Farmers

This Black History month and beyond, we are honoring, celebrating and acknowledging the contributions of Black farmers to our communities and food systems. 

The United States was built on the backs of enslaved peoples and for centuries Black farmers have been feeding our communities and leading the way in regenerative and sustainable agriculture practices. 

Download and share these social media graphics to uplift the voices of  Black farmers in your community and the work you are doing as a state legislator to create a more just and equitable food and farming system.
