National Black Farmers Association Congratulates Biden's Agriculture Secreatry Nominee Tom Vilsack, Calls for Him to End "Culture of Discrimination" at USDA
December 8, 2020--For Immediate Release
The following is the statement of John Boyd, President and Founder of the National Black Farmers Association, on the nomination of President Elect Joe Biden of Tom Vilsack to be Secretary of Agriculture:
"Secretary Tom Vilsack will certainly be a big improvement over Secretary Sonny Purdue. And while Black farmers had legislative successes during the Obama Administration, far too little was done during his tenure to address the long legacy of discrimination against Black farmers. Doors continue to be closed to many Black farmers and today our members face enormous challenges - including a system that disproportionately leaves them behind. To level the playing field and right these historic wrongs, Mr. Vilsack as Secretary must expand Black farmer access to land and credit and reform USDA's income support and insurance programs to end systemic discrimination. He must create outreach programs to help Black farmers participate in these programs and lift the veil of secrecy that hides the true extent of racial discrimination at USDA. I stand ready to work with Secretary Vilsack to meet these challenges - and to hold him accountable."
