Fall Legislative Fly-In

September 9-11, 2019
Washington, D.C. 

*A limited number of scholarships are available to cover travel and accommodation costs*

Farmers Union members from across the country will gather in Washington, D.C., in September for the 2019 Fall Legislative Fly-In!

During their time in Washington, members will be afforded the opportunity to hear from U.S. Department of Agriculture officials about current events, opportunities, and other work the department is doing on behalf of farmers. They will receive briefings from other administration officials and the leadership and staff of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Agriculture.

The most important agenda items of the fly-in, however, are the meetings on Capitol Hill. Teams of Farmers Union members will stop by the office of every member of Congress. Grassroots efforts at their finest, Farmers Union members will highlight the key priorities for the organization, struggles they are facing, and goals for future legislation and the next farm bill.
