September 19-22, 2021
FFarmers Union members from across the country will gather in Washington, D.C. in September for the 2021 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 other officials from around the Executive Branch about their important work on competition and resiliency in the food system. Participants will receive briefings from the leadership and staff of key Congressional committees.
The most important agenda items of the fly-in, however, are the meetings with legislators, which are a hallmark of the 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.
Keep up with all things Fly-In on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For more information about future fly-in activities, please contact your state/regional Farmers Union office.
Fly-in materials coming soon!
