  • "But where do we find joy?

    A few years ago as a friend and I were walking our dogs in the woods, she said watching dogs run and play brings her joy. I hadn’t really thought about the concept of joy that way and how even a little bit of it can lift our spirits for quite a while.

    I’m sure I’m not alone in this quest for joy these days so I can keep fighting for good. If you are reading this, please take a minute and drop me a line about what brings you joy. Is it a song, a prayer, a meal, or a place? Is it dogs playing??? I’d love to know and share with our broader community if you’ll give me permission. "

  • We passed a big milestone this past weekend marking the third anniversary of the shared-leadership model between NAMA and the National Family Farm Coalition (NFFC). Another big anniversary is around the corner, too: the day we took off on a two-month, 13,000 miles trek across rural America. 

    Read more about what we learned from the America the Bountiful Tour, and what we've learned since then. We also have the Disparity to Parity Webinar Recording, info on Diane Wilson's Hunger Strike, the NEC's Black Solidarity Fund, and an aquaculture bill that's dead in the water.
