Protecting the Future of Food
The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI-USA) believes in order to ensure a safe, adequate supply of healthy food, we must protect farm workers and encourage environmentally sound farming. We see environmental sustainability, economic viability, biodiversity, and social justice as inextricably linked. Therefore, the best way to ensure a just, sustainable future for farming is to create a reality where farmers feel supported and protected and have the resources to thrive.
To cultivate markets, policies, and communities that support thriving, socially just, and environmentally sound family farms.
Family farmers have the power to earn a fair and dependable income.
Everyone who labors in agriculture is respected, protected, and valued by society.
Air, water, and soil are preserved for future generations.
The land yields healthy and abundant food and fiber that is accessible to all members of society.
The full diversity of seeds and breeds, the building blocks of agriculture, is reinvigorated and publicly protected.See more
