WASHINGTON – National Farmers Union’s 120th Anniversary Convention will bring together members, industry professionals, policymakers, and reporters for educational sessions, award presentations, the organization’s signature grassroots policy adoption process, and an election for its next vice president.
During the three-day event, family farmers and ranchers will have the opportunity to hear from notable speakers on the efforts to fight monopolies in agriculture through the Fairness for Farmers campaign and what we can learn from the pandemic.
