The Organic Farmers Association, the National Organic Coalition, IFOAM North America, the Accredited Certifiers Association, and the International Organic Inspectors Association are collaborating on a project to offer Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources for Organic Professionals.
As a part of this project, we are hosting a webinar on the History of Racism in US Agriculture & Organic, Wednesday, December 8th, from 1 to 2.30 pm ET.
Organic organizations have recognized the need for a training providing baseline knowledge and common language for diversity, equity, and inclusion across the organic community. This webinar, presented by Cambium Collective, LLC, will provide an overview of systemic racism in organic agriculture systems, data on current demographics surrounding organic farmers, consumers, and service providers, and existing policies contributing or remediating discrepancies.
The webinar is open to all, but is specifically designed for organic inspectors, organic certifiers, and organic farm education organizations. We hope that you encourage your staff to attend. We know that if we work on this together, we can build a stronger organic movement.

We hope you will join us! Registration is open through Monday, December 6th.
