SFPA Opposes Discriminatory Legislation in Tennessee; Urges Policymakers to Remain Committed to Equality, Innovation and Growth
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 2020 – The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA) strongly opposes the discriminatory bills under consideration by the Tennessee legislature.

We urge policymakers to remain committed to the values of innovation and growth that we all share.
