USDA reaching out to Hispanic and women farmers and ranchers with discrimination claims


I want to make sure Californians know that the USDA has opened a discrimination claims process for Hispanic and women farmers that extends through March 25, 2013.   In California, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency has announced a series of 13 meetings from October 10 through January 23, 2013 to provide more information about the process.

Civil rights are a top priority for us all. Government agencies are committed to being model employers and premier services providers, and the USDA’s discrimination claims process is a fundamental example of that.
