The Council of State Governments Eastern Regional Conference, Council on Communities of Color, presents the latest installment of its ongoing micro-summit series, now called The Movement Summit series. This new discussion will focus on Black Farmers: A Struggle for Relief and a Future.  

The Movement Summits are the CCC’s unique convenings of state and local policymakers, experts, and thinkers in search of equitable governing solutions. This panel will take place via Zoom on Friday, May 14, 10 – 11 a.m. ET.

Black Farmers will examine current federal attempts to provide economic relief for troubled Black farmers. The panel will also look at the future possibilities of farming in BIPOC communities, including ways to expand investments and career opportunities in the field of agricultural science, especially with respect to climate change. What are regional and state-led trends? How can the regions pull together to assist Black farmers?

Registrants will receive a Zoom access link upon registration. Audience members will be able to ask questions by chat. Audience members are encouraged to discuss the topic and share information on the panel on social media at #MovementSummit
