Mobilizing Community to Support BIPOC Farms (Washington Farmland Trust Team 2)

The team partnered with Washington Farmland Trust (WFT) to research ways to mobilize federal, state, and local support for BIPOC farmers in emergency weather situations. The team also developed a set of videos to connect farmers with federal emergency assistance, showcase historical information about BIPOC farmers, and increase online exposure to WFT’s volunteer programs.
