USDA Roundtable in The Opportunity Center
Posted On June 29, 2022 in News
Great article in The Post and Courier about the March 14th, 2022 meeting here at our new home, The Opportunity Center! It included local Black landowners and farmers who shared their experiences with Deputy Agriculture Secretary Jewel Bronaugh and U.S. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn. The goal of the discussion was for the USDA to share its ongoing efforts to root out generations of systemic racism, deeply integrate equity in decision-making and policymaking, and build equitable systems and programming inclusive of those served by the agency. Heirs’ property and the Center are mentioned in the article.
