May 2018 “Monthly Briefing”

 2018 Farmer Lobbyists Engage D.C. Policymakers

A group of Family Farm Alliance members spent three days walking the halls of Congress and downtown Washington, D.C., meeting with Trump Administration officials, Members of Congress, and Congressional staffers as part of the Alliance 2018 Farmer Lobbyist trip.

“The Alliance’s D.C. fly-in is one of our “cornerstone” programs which brings family farmers and water professionals to Washington, D.C. to meet with legislators and Administration policy leaders on critical water issues,” said Alliance President Pat O’Toole. “The Alliance philosophy has long held that the most effective voice in Washington DC is the individual family farmer.”
