In recent history, The USDA Excludes Female Minority Farmers from The American Rescue Plan Funding, Inflation Act and other Equity & Inclusion Resources. The National Women in Agriculture Association Fights for Equality and seeks justice.

The National Women in Agriculture Association (NWIAA ), one of the largest minority, youth, and women-serving agriculture non-profit organizations in the US, is proud to announce a momentous and empowering event taking place on Thursday, September 21, 2023, in Washington D.C. A diverse coalition of farmers, activists, and allies will gather for a historic advocacy march to raise their voices in support of Black women farmers’ rights to provide agriculture sustainable life skill opportunities to at-risk-youth as other groups have been receiving for over 100 years. The march will highlight the challenges faced by Black women in agriculture, promote equity and inclusion within the agricultural sector, and seek support for NWIAA to become the first Black congressionally chartered non-profit in the US.

As the agricultural landscape plays a pivotal role in shaping our nation’s economy and food security, it is crucial to address the disparities faced by Black women farmers and at-risk-youth, who have historically encountered systemic obstacles and discrimination in securing resources and obtaining land access. NWIAA firmly believes that a more diverse and inclusive agricultural community is essential for sustainable, prosperous, and culturally-relevant farming practices and food security intervention approaches. The advocacy march will begin at Capitol Hill, will move to the Department of Agriculture headquarters, and will conclude in front of the White House, where participants from various backgrounds–including farmers, community leaders, policymakers, and advocates–will gather to express their solidarity and demand concrete actions from lawmakers and agricultural stakeholders. The event will include speeches, testimonies, and performances to showcase the resilience and determination of Black women in agriculture.

Key objectives of the advocacy march include:

1. Raising Awareness : Shedding light on the unique challenges faced by Black women farmers and at-risk-youth, including the limited access to land, resources, and credit; as well as disparities in government support programs.

2. Policy Reforms : Calling for legislative reforms that promote inclusivity, equity, and diversity within the agricultural sector, ensuring equal opportunities and fair treatment for Black women farmers.

3. Economic Empowerment & Development : Advocating for financial support, technical assistance, and educational opportunities that foster the success of Black women in agriculture and enable them to thrive in their chosen profession.

4. Secure a Meeting with Congress : To discuss the charter process, architect the bill, and get it passed so funds may move quickly into our beloved Black communities, which are ready to receive.

NWIAA invites individuals, local and national organizations, congresspeople, and media representatives to join this transformative & informative event by supporting our organization’s movement for Black women farmer rights and their push to become the first Black congressionally chartered non-profit in the US.
