Our friends at National Young Farmers Coalition recently wrote a guide for young farmers on engaging with political candidates this election season. They provide five specific ideas for how to engage, including:
- Attend a town hall or candidate forum.
- Ask a question at a local debate.
- Get a group of local farmers together to request an on-farm meeting with the candidate.
- Engage the candidates on social media.
- Bring your friends into the conversation.
