Midwest Farmers of Color Big Convening

Our organization began with a big convening in February of 2020 and we had our 2nd in 2023. It is incredibly important to have a space, as farmers of color, that is planned for and hosted by and for us. We convene to build power, relationships and caucus on priority issues and strategies. We are currently planning the next Midwest Farmer of Color Convening of our collective in February of 2025. We plan to bring together our previous network as well as new farmers we’ve met through our organizing, into the fold. Land access, soil and water health, infrastructure, are clear priorities at the state level as well as for the Farm Bill.
