Diversity In Agriculture

AGDAILY has long been a leader in discussing farming’s most difficult, complex, and timely issues, and our editors and contributors strive to bring awareness to the needs of minority farmers and other marginalized groups in agriculture. Our Diversity In Agriculture page, created through a partnership with American Farmland Trust, brings together more than a year’s worth of research, interviews, and viewpoints, including an industry-defining exploration of race and agriculture and feature pieces on the history of minorities in this industry.

AGDAILY and American Farmland Trust believe that achieving a resilient agricultural system depends on equity, and inclusion for all groups, and this webpage offers an opportunity to look to the future and continue nurturing these critical discussions. We promote diverse voices, because White, Black, Brown, young, old, male, or female, so many people have engaging and important stories to tell and viewpoints to share. People in agriculture and related food sectors should have the opportunity to speak their mind, to speak their heart, and to speak their truth.

American Farmland Trust is the leading national organization dedicated to saving America’s farm and ranch land, promoting healthy farming practices, and supporting farms and farmers. AFT is committed to advancing equity and inclusion in all areas of AFT’s mission through multiple avenues, including our programs, communications, and advocacy. To learn more about AFT’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, please visit the Statement on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice.
