WHAT'S THE BEEF?
A SLOW MEAT POLICY PANEL 

Wednesday, February 10
​11am PST / 2pm EST

Join us to examine the impacts of industrial-scale livestock production. We’ll hear perspectives on family-scale farming and ranching, farm animal welfare, regenerative agricultural practices, and meat and poultry workers. This will serve as a launch point for national 2023 Farm Bill discussions. We’ll consider important federal legislation, including Representative Pingree's Agriculture Resilience Act (ARA) and Senator Booker's Farm System Reform Act. We’ll give you simple steps to contact your federal legislators to support these and other important bills. This panel is curated by our national Food and Farm Policy Steering Committee.
