Making Farms Centers of Justice and Fairness — Your Support is Needed!
The Northeast Organic Farming Association has been working with the Farm Worker Support Committee (CATA) and the Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA (RAFI-USA) since 1999 to advocate for fairness in the domestic food system, to empower workers and farmers, build capacity, educate the public, and create lasting partnerships across sectors.
The Agricultural Justice Project was formed out of this collaborative effort and a major part of its work is the creation and management of the Food Justice Certified (FJC) program. This label sets the bar high for fair labor and trade practices and allows consumers to connect with farmers and other food businesses that use fair practices. AJP also offers cost share to farm operators for the certification process.
Please make a difference today and donate to AJP! As a member of the large and diverse NOFA community across 7 states, your donation today will help where it is needed most, on the farm.
Help us continue our dedicated efforts and accomplishments. Thank you for donating any amount!
