Participants at a CFSA policy workshop

Are you passionate about sustainable food and agriculture? Do you want to enhance your ability to advocate for causes that are important to you and your neck of the Carolinas? Then you’ll want to join CFSA’s Member Advocacy Program!

In a better world, politicians and policymakers would immediately agree to do everything you want, and policies would change. Of course, it rarely happens that way. If there are laws, policies, or regulations in your community that need changing, you owe it to yourself to learn how to do it yourself.

Those selected for the program will learn:

  • How to communicate with and influence policymakers;
  • The role of grassroots vs. grasstops pressure;
  • Effective ways to generate change in their community;
  • How to leverage networks and relationships to become an influential force
