Agriculture policy is at the nexus of so many important issues.
In the US Agriculture Policy Practicum, I conducted research on Black farm land loss and associated impacts, and presented my findings to clients. Unlike traditional class structures, our research was based on ongoing dialogue with our clients, giving it a critical dynamism and egalitarianism. Our deliverables will be used for policy advocacy and community engagement by our community partners, and we hope this will broaden the discourse on agricultural policy and our client's audience for their work.
