Farm Aid’s 2020 Goals and Our To-Do List for the New Year
When Willie raised over $7 million during the first Farm Aid concert in 1985, he knew he had to find an Executive Director who could handle the task of distributing all that money. He handpicked Carolyn Mugar, an activist for many social issues, including labor, environment, toxics, literacy, and community empowerment. Being half Armenian, Carolyn started a reforestation project in Armenia. In her “spare” time, Carolyn serves on a variety of non-profit boards, and is constantly finding new hobbies. We’re all convinced that Carolyn doesn’t sleep at night – that’s the only way we figure she could manage to do all that she does!
With your help, family farmers can fight... to stay on their land, to grow good food for all of us, to raise a new generation of farmers to take care of our soil and water.
