    Tell Congress to make farmers a part of the economic recovery
    To tell your congressional representatives that a comprehensive economic stimulus must include family farmers, use our form with sample text to send an email to ask them to:

    Ensure that farmers—including beginning farmers—have access to the credit they need to grow our food and our economy.
    Grant farmers the same safeguards that homeowners receive so that farmers facing foreclosure do not lose their farm and their home.
