Animal Agriculture Alliance Educates the Public from a Grass Roots Level

Tue, 18 Jan 2022 16:01:15 CST

Animal Agriculture Alliance Educates the Public from a Grass Roots Level A small but mighty team makes up the Animal Agriculture Alliance. Founded in 1987, the non-profit organization brings folks from all corners of the agriculture industry together to safeguard the future of animal agriculture in the U.S.

KC Sheperd, director of the Rural Oklahoma Network, sat down with Emily Solis, communications specialist for the Animal Agriculture Alliance, to talk about a couple of programs the organization offers.

“The Animal Ag Allies program was launched last summer,” Solis said. “The purpose of the program is to empower farmers, ranchers and practicing veterinarians to be outspoken advocates for agriculture both online and in their communities.”

Participants take part in online courses made up of five modules that give an overview of the different sectors that make up the animal agriculture industry in the U.S. and more, according to Solis.

“Once you complete the modules, you will be added to a private forum where you have the opportunity to network and engage with past participants of the Allies program,” Solis said.

The Alliance teaches Allies to advocate for agriculture that they may not be familiar with from a personal standpoint.

“One of the things that make the Animal Ag Allies program unique,” Solis said. “A lot of the people that go through the program have already completed their species-specific advocacy program and Allies is the next step, where they have the opportunity to learn (more) so they have a general understanding (of the entire industry).”
