Today, we announced a new coalition focused on improving the livelihood of Black Farmers.
Last week you heard about the call for a boycott by the National Black Farmers Association. In the past six years, John Deere has supported the National Black Farmers Association through financial sponsorship, equipment donation, and participation in the 2019 annual conference.
We invest resources to eliminate systemic barriers facing Black farmers and communities through our continued partnership with organizations like the National Black Growers Council and Minorities in Ag, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANNRS). We remain committed to these organizations, the additional partners with whom we work, members of our new coalition, as well as Black farmers and the communities they represent.
