CCOF Annual Meeting and Advocacy Day 2020

CCOF 2020 Event

Rooting for Organic

Eventbrite - CCOF Annual Meeting & Conference 2019

Walk the halls of the Golden State Capitol with CCOF as we sow the seeds for a nationwide movement. At our Rooting for Organic advocacy day on February 19, 2020 in Sacramento, California, stakeholders from across the organic sector will advocate for policies that support the growth of organic agriculture and increase access to organic foods. Together, we will showcase a model for advancing organic with policies that combat climate change; stimulate local economies; and enhance the health of farmers, farmworkers, and diverse consumers around the world.

Your voice and expertise can drive change when you are a part of these conversations with our elected officials. You won’t want to miss this chance to connect with policymakers, farmers, and organic advocates, and root for the many ways organic makes our world a healthier place.

Join us the evening before the advocacy day to celebrate the official release of our groundbreaking Roadmap to an Organic California: Policy Report, which will chart a path to grow the organic landscape in California and beyond. The CCOF Foundation is hosting this reception, with a live band, organic menu, photobooth, and organic friends. You’ll leave energized to advocate for organic the next day at the Capitol.

The CCOF Annual Meeting and event is a yearly tradition that convenes the CCOF membership and supporters to celebrate successes and plan for the future. Root with us for the future of organic! Register today to lend organic your voice on February 19.
