Signed on (emailed Karen Hansen-Kuhn from IATP requesting SFUSA be signed on)
7/3/2019New agreement (USMCA) does nothing to fix the fundamental shortcomings of the previous North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), while further locking in trade rules that have devastated family farms and expanded corporate control over agriculture and our food system in all three countries.

Introduced by Congresswoman DeLauro (D-CT), spearheaded by Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM)
Endoresement of bill: Buy American Agriculture Act, H.R. 2712Signed on?
Would require the USDA to buy seafood and agricultural commodities under the Food Purchase and Distribution Program from domestic enterprises, instead of subsidizing multinational corporations. NAMA (Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance) worked with OCM (Organization for Competitive Markets) to make sure that seafood was included in the legislation. It not only stops the forced taxpayer subsidization of the most abusive transnational corporations; it encourages USDA to start considering local and regional processors when making purchasing decisions, creating new market opportunities for family farms and food businesses.
