NEJRC is proud to announce the release of a new report by Becca Berkey! Just Farming: An Environmental Justice Perspective on the Capacity of Grassroots Organizations to Support the Rights of Organic Farmers and Laborers looks at how justice-relaed issues (such as pay, access to housing and health care) are impacting farmers and farmworkers on organic farms in the northeastern United States. Becca also looks at the role of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) in addressing these issues. Check out the report and/or executive summary by clicking here for the report and here for the executive summary.
