The Farm Advocate Link is a national network of Farm Advocates. Its mission is to train, support and recruit a new generation of Farm Advocates in service to America’s family farmers. The Farm Advocate Link provides:
- Transfer of skills and experience between Farm Advocates;
- Ongoing mentoring for a new generation of Farm Advocates;
- And an important connection between farmers’ experience and activism for structural change.
The Farm Advocate Link draws on decades of experience and collaboration addressing farmers’ needs for just and effective access to credit, risk management and disaster assistance programs – the financial infrastructure that underpins agriculture. It also works to identify the specific reforms needed to make real structural change that will keep farms in business and allow them to transition to the next generation.
