Fair Farms advocates on a wide array of important issues during this Maryland General Assembly session, which runs January through early April. We need your help! Every year we will offer opportunities for you to lift up your voice with your legislators in support of these critical issues. We will keep this page updated with information about bills and opportunities to write and call your legislators, submit testimony, and spread the word in an effort to turn these important policies into law.
