This webinar will focus on grassroot concerns about carbon markets in agriculture. As the climate crisis increasingly impacts rural communities in the US, corporate capture of the climate agenda threatens to undermine efforts to hold polluters accountable and bolster resilience in rural communities. Featuring farmer and producer advocate voices from across the food system, this webinar will identify key pitfalls of carbon trading schemes and highlight the importance of existing agricultural conservation programs for reducing emissions and supporting family-scale agriculture.

Presented by the National Family Farm Coalition, Friends of the Earth US, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, and Organic Consumers Association.

Presenters Include: 
-Mardy Townsend, Ashtabula-Lake Geauga Farmers Union, Ohio
-Elizabeth Henderson, Northeast Organic Farmers Association-New York

    FSNE's 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge is coming up fast! Join us as we continue to deepen our commitment to racial equity

  • As a NAMA staff and board, for several years we’ve been deepening our commitment to our core values, especially when it comes to ‘dignity for all people’ and our commitment to racial equity. We know that understanding how systems of inequity show up in our fishing communities and our seafood supply chain ultimately start by understanding ourselves. During our recent staff retreat at NAMA, we had a chance to examine the need for racial equity every day. 

    This month there are a couple of opportunities for all of us to deepen our own commitments to these issues:

  • "Ultimately, I believe the problems that non-indigenous, white folks like myself see in our fishing communities today are manifestations of what began when my ancestors arrived 400 years ago. This means that in order to tackle today’s problems in earnest, we must learn from the past and center our solutions around those who’ve been longest impacted by these problems. Otherwise, we’re bound to continue repeating the history with the brunt of the impact shouldered by black, indigenous, and people of color."
