Why the Green New Deal Needs to Include Fair Prices for Farmers 13.2.2019 Organic Consumers Association News Headlines

The GND twin resolutions, introduced February 7, 2019, call for all Americans to have access to healthy food, clean water and clean air. The GND also proposes to provide “economic security,” jobs and good wages to all who want to participate in the new green economy.

For consumers, healthy food (and clean water and clean air, for that matter) mean transitioning away from an industrial agriculture model that poisons our food and pollutes our environment.

For farmers, any promise of “economic security” must include the return to an economic agriculture model based on providing farmers a fair price for the products they produce—or as the agriculture industry calls it, “parity pricing.” Only then, will the GND fulfill its promise to clean up our food system, clean up our environment and provide a “fair and just transition for all communities and workers.”

Why We Endorse the #GreenNewDeal, and How We Plan to Support It 24.1.2019 Organic Consumers Association News Headlines
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) fully endorses the Green New Deal (GND) as the most promising policy-level vehicle for achieving the large-scale transition to an organic, regenerative food and farming system, while at the same time cleaning up the environment, advancing social justice, restoring urban and rural food and economic security, and restabilizing the climate. We believe the GND’s potential to achieve its goals hinges on whether its architects and proponents craft, support and fully fund programs and policies that will rapidly scale up both the transition to renewable energy alternatives and the transition to organic regenerative agriculture and land-use and land-restoration practices. To achieve these large-scale transitions will require the public support and political will to confront the corporate dominance of our democracy, perpetuated by lawmakers who take campaign donations from the fossil fuel and industrial agribusiness industries. Absent the necessary political will, we must ...
