About Us

Family Farm Action Alliance is a thought leader, policy developer, and network builder for farmers and ranchers, food chain workers, consumers, organizations, and policymakers up and down the food supply chain.

We are working to build a sustainable, inclusive economy in which everyone has the right to share in the prosperity they help build and that respects our land, natural resources, and neighbors around the world. From fair market advocacy, to racial equity, labor rights, animal welfare, and environmental justice, we see a common theme: monopolistic corporate control is at the root of each of these issues, impacting all of us. 

We got to work. In 2017, polling showed that 65% of people saw corporate monopolies as a big problem, and by 2020 that number had grown to 87%. By connecting and supporting unlikely allies, we spread awareness that abusive corporate power is the common adversary to a resilient and just food system. Our mission keeps the interconnectedness of the land, animals, workers, farmers, ranchers and consumers at the forefront of this fight.

We understand that discrimination against Black farmers, Indigenous communities and people of color are symptoms of the same extractive mindset that degrades the land, abuses animals and traps rural communities in cycles of poverty and social strife. We cannot solve one of these issues without considering all of them. We can build a more just food system by considering each issue, elevating the work of groups experiencing hardships and generating solutions on the ground, and developing a common narrative that brings these diverse stakeholders together.
