About BPFA

 

 

Black Professionals in Food and Agriculture was founded in October 2020 for the purpose of promoting the advancement and development of black professionals in the food and agriculture industry. All too often the voices and input of Black policy makers, congressional staffers, and industry representatives are excluded in the development of policies and programs that serve America’s farmers, ranchers, and producers. BPFA is committed to ensuring that those voices have a presence in the room and a seat at the table.
