Tell USDA to finalize and enforce strong organic animal welfare standards NOW (or ASAP)

Sign OFA’s petition to USDA to finalize the Organic Livestock and Poultry Standards (OLPS) Proposed Rule, which encompasses decades of widespread organic community debate and support to update organic standards with critical animal welfare provisions.  Take action now to 1) demonstrate widespread industry and consumer support for the proposed rule, 2) tell USDA to set a more aggressive implementation time of 3 years (letting them know that the 15-year implementation plan is NOT viable), 3) Make OLPS standards clear to make sure animal welfare standard are enforceable and high integrity.

Support the Agriculture Resilience Act (H.R. 2803 / S. 1337)

Tell your Representative and Senators to support this bill and make farming part of the solution to climate change. In April 2021, Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME) and Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) introduced the Agriculture Resilience Act.  The bill sets a goal of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in U.S. agriculture by the year 2040.

Tell Your Members of Congress to Support Organic Farmers

It’s never a bad time to tell your elected officials why they should support policies that organic farmers need. They always need to hear from their constituents what is really happening on the ground, especially on organic farms.
