Next week weâre delivering your signatures and comments to
Secretary Vilsack at his offices in Washington DC.
Please forward this message to 5 of your friends to help us reach
our goal of over 100,000 Americans for a sustainable USDA.
We want to thank you for helping us make this petition a success.
To date over 84,659 Americans have signed the letter calling for
sustainable change at the USDA.
Original signers to the letter include Michael Pollan, Wendell
Berry, Wes Jackson, Marion Nestle, Francis Moore LappÃ©, Bill McKibben,
Alice Waters, Dan Barber and Rick Bayless among many others.
So far we know that weâve had success in changing the debate in
how agriculture is being discussed in the 21st century. Since his
confirmation, Secretary Vilsack has made a number of forward-thinking
statements that prove he understands the urgent need for change in our
nationâs food policies.
Let's make sure the administration understands how much support
the idea of sustainable practices in U.S. food and farm policy weâre
asking that you forward this message to 5 friends to have them sign
the petition and help put us over the top.
Thanks again for all your help, we look forward to creating a
sustainable food system for the 21st century.
