We need your urgent help to ensure key provisions are retained in the final Farm Bill compromise package!

August 9, 2018

 

The U.S. House and Senate have now both named conferees for the 2018 Farm Bill conference committee. As you know, there are several provisions included in both versions of the bill that would be of historic importance to tribal governments and communities, Native producers, and all of Indian Country.

In the next few weeks, it is critically important that federal lawmakers – and especially the conferees for the 2018 Farm Bill – hear from you. We have united like never before to advocate for the interests of Indian Country, and we need your urgent help to ensure key provisions are retained in the final Farm Bill compromise package.

Please take a moment to send a letter to the members of the Farm Bill conference committee next week, urging their support for the various provisions supported by Indian Country and the Native Farm Bill Coalition! 

  • To view a sample customizable letter, click here. Of course, you may modify the substance of your letter to include issues of particular importance to your tribe.

Time is of the essence. Thank you for your ongoing partnership and engagement as a member of the Native Farm Bill Coalition. Together, we’ve made major strides forward on behalf of Indian Country – but we aren’t done yet. Please don’t wait to make your voice heard: Send a letter as soon as possible to the Farm Bill conferees, especially if one of your home state members is on the conference committee.
