Building the Grassroots Power Base

Policy gains of the sustainable agriculture movement offer inspiring examples of representative democracy’s power to change markets, culture and essential social structures. But only a fraction of the movement’s passionate adherents actually receive MFAI or National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) action alerts on policy initiatives, and many supporters’ contact information is outdated.

In Wisconsin, MFAI’s Policy Program encourages participants in our workshops to sign up to receive action MFAI’s newsletters and action alerts.  We also encourage them to receive NSAC’s alerts and updates.

Nationally, MFAI works with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition and others to identify supporters who are interested in receiving our action alerts and updates of information.

We encourage you to sign up for the Weekly Updates of the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition.
