Farm and Food Activism
Judith McGeary, Esq

Preview this presentation:

For many years, the laws and regulations governing our food have been written by and for Big Agribusiness. As the local foods movement grows, it is coming into conflict with existing regulations that pose unnecessary burdens and barriers -- and Big Agribusiness continues to push for yet more regulation of small producers. Whether you are a farmer or a concerned consumer, you can help make a difference in the laws that govern our farms and our food. This workshop, which will be a mix of lecture and interactive discussion, will cover the basics of strategy planning for policy work and tips for how to lobby effectively.

Judith McGeary, Esq., is an attorney, activist, and sustainable farmer. She has a B.S. in Biology from Stanford University and her J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. After a clerkship with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, she practiced as an attorney in the areas of administrative law, litigation, and appeals. After seeing how government regulations benefit industrial agriculture at the expense of family farms, she founded the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance to provide a voice for independent agriculture. Judith also serves as the Vice Chair of the U.S. Secretary's Advisory Committee on Animal Health and is active with Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, the Weston A. Price Foundation, and the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. She and her husband have a farm in Central Texas with sheep, cattle, horses, chickens, and turkeys.
