Urge Sen. Majority Leader McConnell to end the shutdown, today.

This is the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. With no federal food safety inspections, limited access to USDA loan programs for farmers, and climate and environmental research at a standstill, our food system — and all of us — are at risk.

Raimondo, tell Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to end the government shutdown, today.

The House of Representatives has already passed a spending bill that would end the shutdown. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to act, despite the fact that the Senate unanimously passed the very same bill in December.

Instead, Senator McConnell is falling in line behind the president’s politically motivated, racist ploy to demand funding for a border wall. Our health and safety are on the line. And for what?

We don’t need a wall. We need a safe, fair, and just food system for all. Urge Senator Mitch McConnell to end the shutdown, today.

Here at PAN,  we know that successfully ending reliance on hazardous pesticides can only happen by creating healthy, just food and farming systems. And this means for all of us — farmers, scientists, farmworkers, eaters — regardless of immigration status.

We won’t stand by while federal scientists and workers are furloughed or work without pay, farmers lack crucial support as planting season nears, and we all sit down to meals with little assurance as to the safety of our food.

Senator McConnell can — and must — end the shutdown, today. It’s the right thing to do.

Thanks for all you do.
