This week, Missouri Democrats unveiled the party’s platform to build a more prosperous future for rural Missourians. The announcement included three fundamental rights that align closely with Family Farm Action’s Farmers Bill of Rights.
Communications Director Chelsea Davis said “we are thrilled that The Democratic Party has recognized rural Missouri is struggling and they are ready to take serious action.”
The food and farming industry continue to consolidate at an astonishing pace giving multinational agribusinesses unprecedented power. These big ag monopolies are exporting wealth and hollowing out rural communities. “Family Farm Action is a bipartisan organization but if the Missouri Democrats are serious about helping create a level playing field for family farmers we are ready to work together” Davis added.
Family Farm Action is a coalition of family-farmers and advocates building the “political muscle” to fight for farmers and rural communities. A progressive voice fighting to protect America’s family farms and rural communities from multinational agribusiness monopolies that are destroying rural economies and our way of life.
