Based in NC
RAFI-USA (Rural Advancement Foundation International) has recognized that our food system is deeply inequitable, where rural communities — their land, animals and people — are exploited to benefit corporate power structures. Working across agricultural sectors and collaboratively through coalitions, we combine on–the-ground practical services and policy advocacy to ensure farmers have access to the tools they need to make the right choices for their farm and families as well as for their communities and the environment. RAFI-USA takes a whole system approach to change.
