Family Farms Mean Business!
Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Join us for a day of action at the State Capitol in Salem to support legislation addressing some of the top issues facing Oregon family farmers and ranchers. Brief presentations in the morning will cover current farm and food legislation, with tips and guidance for weighing in effectively with policymakers in preparation for meetings with your legislators later in the day. And once again, we will be holding a mid-day rally on the Capitol steps and a special Farmers Market inside the Capitol to highlight the issues we will be talking about. Join us for the day and together we can show decision-makers that Family Farms Mean Business! Light breakfast and lunch provided. Please RSVP below!
Date: Wednesday, March 27th, 2019
Time: 9am (registration until 10am) to 4pm (end time may vary depending on legislative meetings)
Where: Willamette Heritage Center - Spinning Room (1313 Mill St SE, Salem, OR 97301)
