Stop the Bayer+Monsanto Merger
There is a merger wave currently underway among the world’s agricultural giants that produce the chemicals and seeds our family farmers need. When they are done, the market will be dominated by two large and two smaller companies — spelling disaster for American farmers and consumers who will see food costs go up and innovation decline. Take action.
Restore Our Democracy Through Enforcement of Antitrust Laws
Today, our government, through lack of enforcement of our antitrust laws, has granted monopolistic opportunity to a few multi-national corporations. The failure of our government to fully enforce marketplace safeguards – the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act and the Packers and Stockyards Act – is denying Americans their opportunity to have their piece of the American Dream and is a threat to our very democracy. Take action.
Demand Reinstatement of Country of Origin Labeling
Labeling provides consumers with important information for their marketplace choices. It helps guide consumers who want to buy from U.S. family farmers and ranchers rather than industrial multi-national corporations that commingle meat products from several foreign countries. It is in the best interests of U.S. consumers and U.S. independent farmers and ranchers to demand Country of Origin Labeling be reinstated in the U.S. Take action.
Support the Good Food Purchasing Program

We encourage cities, school districts, and public institutions throughout the country to join the movement in adopting and implementing the Program. Take action.
