Policymaking, like most of 2020, was a roller-coaster. Fires, the pandemic, markets, and insurance coverage were just some of the issues California farmers & agricultural communities faced and policymakers grappled with. At the same time, Black Lives Matters and increased discussions around social inequalities were a ray of hope. 2021 will no doubt face similar emergencies and persistent challenges. Join a panel of experts to hear results of the CAFF Annual Farmer Survey, discuss policy challenges and opportunities as we look to what's possible in 2021, what it might mean to you and how you can get involved.
