September 11-14, 2022

Farmers Union members from across the country will gather in Washington, DC for the 2022 Fall Legislative Fly-In!

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from U.S. Department of Agriculture officials about current events, opportunities, and other initiatives the department is undertaking on behalf of farmers. We expect to meet with officials from the Biden Administration about their important work on competition and resiliency in the food system. Participants will also receive briefings from key Congressional leaders, especially related to the preparations for the 2023 Farm Bill.

The most important agenda items of the fly-in, however, are the meetings with legislators, which are a hallmark of our organization's grassroots structure. Farmers Union members will meet with their members of Congress to highlight their priorities, the challenges they are facing, and goals for future legislation. Congressional office buildings are slowly opening back up, and it will be exciting to return to in-person meetings in DC.

Keep up with all things Fly-In onFacebook, Twitter, and Instagram. For more information about how to participate in fly-in activities, please contact your state or regional Farmers Union office.
