200 Organization Letter to Congress on Agriculture Consolidation in the 2018 Farm Bill

Yesterday, a letter was distributed to Congress urging them to enforce antitrust laws and restore competition in livestock markets– largely controlled by only a few firms– by leveling the playing field for small and medium-size farmers.  Illinois Stewardship Alliance is proud to be among more than 200 organizations that signed on in support of the letter. Check out the full letter below and stay tuned to our policy work and future actions that your can take by joining our Action Alert list. In the coming year, Congress will be re-writing rules for the 2018 Farm Bill, giving grassroots organizations and individuals an opportunity to come together to create change. Now is the time to get involved and take action.
