Please share: Final GND Food & Agriculture Letter signed by 300+ groups

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for joining more than 300 food, farming, fishing, worker, environmental, public health and public interest organizations in signing-onto this letter urging Congress to support a just transition to climate solutions that include food and agriculture via the Green New Deal. The letter was delivered to members of Congress this morning.

Now we need your help to spread the word via social media. Please help amplify the letter!

 Here is a social media toolkit that includes samples posts and graphics (sample posts also included below).

The press release is here and a PDF of the letter is here.

Please share on social media today and as much as you can over the next few weeks. We hope to keep the drumbeat going while Congress is on recess and when they return at the end of April. If your organization indicated that it is interested in participating in additional actions, we will be in touch in the coming days with follow-up information about ways your organization can be part of this important effort.  

A big thanks to our colleagues at the Center for Food Safety who put together these graphics and sample text with input from our multi-organization communications committee.

And many thanks to all of the organizations that worked together to draft this letter, circulate it for sign-on and help with the release.

Thank you!
