Farm Bill 2018: Policy, Politics, and Potential
March 28 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Please join us for a public symposium US Farm Bill 2018: Policy, Politics & Potential, to be held at American University’s School of International Service on March 28, 2017. This event, co-sponsored by Berkeley Food Institute, will mark the first time that academics, civil society leaders, policy-makers, producers and the general public will be able to present and discuss original research both on and for the US Farm Bill, across and beyond disciplines. Participants will collectively identify research needs and gaps regarding the US Farm Bill, with the objective of increasing popular and scholarly understanding of–and engagement with–this complex legislation and its cascade of impacts. Our goal is to expand the standard debate, which often dichotomizes constituents and oversimplifies key issues, while ignoring others. Instead, we wish to open up this pivotal policy to a wider array of dialogue and analyses, with an eye toward how community-partnered research on and for the US Farm Bill can help inform, reform, and transform it. Get your ticket today.
March 28, 2017, 8AM-4PM, American University School of International Service Abramson Family Founders Room, 4400 Massachusetts Avenue NW
Free and open to the public. Lunch provided with registration.
