A broad-based group of individual farmers and organizations representing growers, refiners, producers, transporters, retailers and consumers have formed Americans for Farmers & Families (AFF), a coalition that will work to ensure President Trump and Congressional leaders have support to preserve and modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). AFF understands that the food and agricultural sectors support 43 million American jobs and depend on trade with Canada and Mexico. Under NAFTA, food and agricultural exports have more than quadrupled and account for 25 percent of American exports. NAFTA has fueled agriculture-related industries’ growth, which in turn has been a driver for creating American jobs. Today, American food and agriculture supports more than 20 percent of the U.S. workforce and provides more manufacturing jobs than any other sector. NAFTA has helped keep grocery prices down for all Americans.
As part of this effort, AFF is recruiting coalition members (farmers, individuals in the agriculture community) to help highlight the positive impact of NAFTA for hard-working Americans and to lay the groundwork for an updated trade agreement that preserves America’s strong economic standing for decades to come. Please consider joining the coalition today by completing the form below and returning the form to Bernadette Comfort at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 717.409.4278.
