Group Releases National "Ban Factory Farm" Petition with 7500+ Signatures to Presidential Candidates

Fri, 24 Jan 2020 09:14:42 CST

Group Releases National Yesterday hundreds of Iowans wrapped up a day of lobbying Iowa by presenting a national petition to top presidential candidates signed by over 7500 people across the country demanding a factory farm moratorium and support for Sen. Cory Booker’s Farm System Reform Act (FSRA).

The group gathered the petition, signed by voters and residents across the country, in just three days. Support for the FSRA and an overhaul of America’s farm system is at an all-time high and candidates will face more and more pressure as the Iowa caucuses approach.

“Any agricultural platform that does not adequately address the worsening factory farm crisis we’re facing across the country, is half baked and majorly flawed,” said Krissy Kasserman, Factory Farm Organizing Manager, Food & Water Action. “With the presidential primary approaching, Americans want candidates that prove they will be bold on agriculture and commit to stopping factory farming.”

“It’s time to take a zero-tolerance approach when it comes to factory farming. The Farm System Reform Act outlines a solution that covers all of our bases to protect Americans from corporate agriculture once and for all,” said Adam Mason, State Policy Director, Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund. “Voters in Iowa and across the country are urging you to prove you would lead in favor of public health and rural communities."

Food & Water Action (FWA) and Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund (Iowa CCI Action) headlined the action. Letter signers included a wide range of people from all zip codes.
