Thank you for sharing your voice and your ideas when we asked how you would advise the President and his administration in the first 100 days in office.
The comments we received ranged from food and agriculture to police reform.
We enjoyed connecting with you and reading your ideas. We will compile your suggestions and send comments to the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition. Since 1992, NSAC has drafted transition memos for Presidential Administrations. The goal of the transition memo is to assist a new Administration as they prioritize policies they will implement as part of their “First 100 Days” agenda.
In his first 100 days in office, Alliance supporters suggest the President should:
