Let’s Move Forward Together on Regenerative Agriculture!

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

Let’s Move Forward Together on Regenerative Agriculture!

 

Were you as excited as we were about the Kiss the Ground film and panel event (review the panel discussion here) on January 6? It was a privilege to be included in co-sponsorship of this event, and appreciated working with our friends at Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and the Business Climate Leaders to plan and implement the event. We were especially pleased to connect RPCV Panama Florence Reed of Sustainable Harvest International with this team.

 

Are you a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV), or a supporter of Peace Corps work worldwide, and would like to join a community concerned about sustainable agriculture and other climate solutions? We invite RPCVs in particular, and friends and allies generally, to join us in actions to make our planet a breathable, livable place again. Become a member here and add your voice to this conversation.

 

  • Take action on carbon emissions by connecting with the CCL advocacy actions of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (EICDA). Contact our Peace Corps Action Team leader Brady Fergusson at bradyf585@gmail.com to find out how you can help advocate with Congress to legislate carbon emissions.
     
  • Take action on lobby efforts for the Growing Climate Solutions Act with CCL’s Business Climate Leaders by contacting them directly. Reach out to Julie Heath at CCL.GCSA@Gmail.com.
     
  • Take action by learning more about regenerative agriculture generally by reviewing the resources our friends at Kiss the Ground offer on their Find Your Path site.
     
  • Take action and help us expand our work in regenerative agriculture. If you are interested, contact kate@rpcv4ea.org to offer your support as we build support for small farmers globally with Florence at Sustainable Harvest International with the "1 million farms, 5 million people" plan. 

We are stronger together!

 

For the planet,

Kate Schachter
