State policymakers see the impacts of the climate crisis and other environmental disasters in rural communities first-hand, whether tornados, long-term drought, catastrophic flooding, air and water pollution, chemical or manure spills, loss of biodiversity, and so much more. Rural communities, especially Black, Indigenous, and communities of color, bear the brunt of decades of extractive agriculture and environmental policy.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. Through regenerative agriculture policy, elected officials are changing what is possible for our food and farming system and the environment.
