CFFN members, representing the diversity of food & farming issues facing the state from hunger and nutrition to farmer livelihood and food chain worker protections, collectively identify policies important for the state’s food and farming system. Seven value-aligned bills were then chosen by a majority-BIPOC decisionmaking body in CFFN– a new 2021 structure created to align our actions with our commitment to racial equity–as priority bills for the whole Network to focus more deeply on.
We ask Legislators to consider these bills to ensure California’s policies contribute to the creation of an inclusive, equitable, and ecologically regenerative food and farming system that has recognized and repaired injustices to Black, Indigenous and people of color workers, producers and communities, and which generates healthy, affordable, accessible, nutritious and culturally appropriate food and other agricultural products.
