We are pleased to announce that our speaker will be Abby Youngblood, the Executive Director at the National Organic Coalition (NOC), an alliance of farmers, ranchers, environmental and consumer advocacy organizations, and companies dedicated to protecting organic integrity. She plans to share some of the key challenges we face in protecting the integrity of the USDA organic seal and growing organic agriculture. She will highlight opportunities we have with the new administration to advance organic and close loopholes to strengthen the organic program. Finally, she will talk about how NOFA-NJ members can advocate with their Congressional delegation and the USDA to create a stronger, more equitable, and more resilient food system and generate wins for organic farming in 2021 and beyond.
About the Speaker: Since 2015, Abby
