Presidential candidate, Senator Elizabeth Warren, has released her plan to assist Black Farmers. After months of meeting with a group of Black Farmers and hearing their tragic tales, she has come up with the following actions to “dismantle the last plantation:”

  1. Transform the culture of USDA from the top down to root out discrimination.
  2. Radically restructure the office that handles civil rights.
  3. Reform the civil rights complaint process to prevent abuse. 
  4. Stop USDA from letting itself off the hook for civil rights complaints.
  5. Address discrimination in the local administration of farm program resources.
  6. Strengthen USDA’s focus on farmworkers.
