One of their special skills is their ability to take almost indecipherable laws and regulations and translate them into plain language. FLAG lawyers have prepared guides on topics such as estate planning, food safety, alternative energy, civil rights, credit, appeals, marketing, tax and many others that have been used by many thousands of farmers. FLAG’s organizational commitment to racial justice has been unwavering and they played key roles in discrimination lawsuits against USDA for Black, Native American, women and Hispanic farmers.
Recently, FLAG rode to the rescue of farmers who faced ruin because of the Covid-19 Pandemic and wrote plain language guides for farmers on how to navigate the Covid-19 Pandemic and how to qualify for the Paycheck Protection Plan, and other Covid relief. As they say on their website, corporate agriculture may have their armies of lawyers; but family farmers have FLAG!
