Angela Marshall Hofmann, Executive Director, Farmers for Free Trade
U.S. farmers, ranchers and consumers benefit greatly from free trade. This workshop will discuss the benefits of international trade agreements for U.S. agriculture and give attendees strategies they can use to advocate for trade that benefits agriculture. Attendees will learn the history of international trade and U.S. agriculture, facts and data demonstrating the importance of trade for America’s farms and ranches, the most recent conditions pertaining to agriculture and trade, and real world ways in which citizens can successfully advocate for trade agreements and the markets needed to sustain U.S. agriculture’s prominence and growth.
