Policymaking, like most of 2020, was a roller-coaster. Fires, pandemic, markets, insurance coverage and racial injustice were just some of the issues California farmers & agricultural communities faced and policymakers grappled with. And 2021 will no doubt face similar emergencies and persistent challenges. Join a panel of experts to hear results from CAFF’s Annual Farmer Survey, discuss policy challenges and opportunities as we look to what’s possible in 2021, what it might mean for you and how you can get involved.
