Alexis Baden-Mayer, Political Director, has offered to connect CCL chapters with farmers.  These farmers may be willing to host a tour for a member of Congress of their farm with a CCL chapter.

National Young Farmers Coalition
Would you like to reach out to young and beginning farmers?  The National Young Farmers Coalition might be a good place to start looking for connections.  Jan Storm, Kelly Lively, and Elli Sparks met with Michelle A.T. Hughes, Federal Policy Associate, while in DC for the CCL Conference in June 2019.   She is open to collaborating in the following ways:
  • Their Communications Director is leading the effort to craft a climate statement with case studies - if you would like to follow up with them on this, please contact Elli
  • Elli will help with connecting CCL staff with Young Farmers policy staff at the state and federal level
  • You can help by Introducing any young farmers in the CCL network with Young Farmers and vice versa
