Animal Agriculture Alliance Wraps Up 2022 Stakeholders Summit
The Animal Agriculture Alliance wrapped up its 2022 Stakeholders Summit today, themed “Come Together for Animal Ag: Be Informed, Be Ready, Be Here.” The dynamic event, which returned to an in-person format for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, brought together a diverse audience of over 260 attendees to Kansas City, Mo. and included an additional 125 registered virtual attendees. Speakers covered topics including environmental stewardship, food equity, influencer engagement and animal rights extremism.

Tying into the Alliance’s mission of safeguarding the future of animal agriculture, Thursday morning’s sessions highlighted how we can do just that. On a panel about trends in activism and security resources, Rebecca Morgan of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center told attendees, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…the most effective measures are often the simplest and least expensive.” Cybersecurity advisor Andrew Rose added that it’s important to remember even the most well-thought-out plans will have holes in them but running through them in advance can help you identify those weak points. In a legal and legislative update session, experts discussed some of the primary issues on the docket and what attendees can do to help. California Proposition 12 and Massachusetts Question 3 were among the issues mentioned. Attorney Brianna Schroeder of Janzen Schroeder Agricultural Law said, “What’s happening on the west coast moves east…stay active and stay in communication with your local legislators.”

A highlights report with key takeaways and quotes from each session will be available soon at www.animalagalliance.org. Save the date for the 2023 Summit, slated for May 4-5 in Arlington, Virginia! Stay tuned to #AAA23 for updates.
