|Interfaith Groups Meet to Discuss Advocacy Strategies
for Farm Bill Reauthorization
|This week, the NCC participated in several meetings with interfaith groups to discuss advocacy efforts to reauthorize the Farm Bill. The current reauthorization, which includes funding for programs that address food insecurity, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), expires on September 30, 2023. NCC will continue to work with member denominations, interfaith groups, and other partners to develop and implement robust advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill to secure food for communities most in need and provide racially equitable farm assistance and lending opportunities for Black farmers.
|NCC Strongly Opposes Florida House Bill 999
|The NCC strongly disapproves of Florida House Bill 999 sponsored by Representative Robert Alexander “Alex” Andrade. The bill seeks to erase pivotal parts of our nation’s history by directing the state university system’s governing board to remove any major or minor degree program “that is based on or otherwise utilizes pedagogical methodology associated with Critical Theory, including, but not limited to, Critical Race Theory, Critical Race Studies, Critical Ethnic Studies, Radical Feminist Theory, Radical Gender Theory, Queer Theory, Critical Social Justice, or Intersectionality…or any major or minor that includes a curriculum that promotes the concepts listed….” NCC urges Florida residents to contact their representative and tell them to vote “NO” on House Bill 999.
