SIGN THE PETITION
President Trump signed the Presidential Executive Order on "Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America" [Read HERE] .
The Center for Food Safety (CFS) with headquarters in Washington DC, maintains a close eye on policy and regulations affecting human health and the environment. CFS and IRT have partnered many times in the past to bring information to the attention of the public.
With permission from CFS, IRT provides our readership with a one-step action to sign the petition urging the task force on agriculture created by the President's Executive Order to create a transparent process for public participation. It is very important that the voices of small, family farmers, organic producers, scientists, environmentalists, and consumers be heard - not just large agribusiness interests.
