Food Security, Sisterhood, and the Future of Agriculture

We are building a "Growing Army".  We have to produce alot of food in a short amount of time. According to the Food and Agriculture organization of the United Nations, to satisfy the expected food and feed demand, we will require a substantial increase of global food production of 70 percent by 2050, and will be here before we know it. That means we need more farmers! 

Black women are the most underutilized asset in agriculture but it is imperative that we become a more productive part of feeding the world from the ground up. We naturally feed our children, families, and communities. Now  it's time to feed the world while making positive, socioeconomic changes to our culture in the process.

Its the youth, the mothers, the hidden trail blazers, and the future for us! Black Women are the smallest part of the most important industry in America... Agriculture. There are more than 22 million Black Women in America, but Black Woman comprise less than 1% of farmers (according to the 2017 USDA Census of agriculture). Black Women in Ag (BWA) is an advocacy organization committed to the advancement of Black Women by addressing economic and social disparities through opportunity, education, advocacy and entrepreneurship.

We are dedicated to establishing and distinguishing at least '1 Million Black Women' in Agriculture by 2026 as our inaugural campaign for the equality and equity of the nation's food, fuel, fiber and beyond. Black Women in Ag unite!
