Description

Dakota Rural Action members participate in the organization through local chapters and statewide committees and work directly with local, state and federal decision makers about the issues that affect their communities.

Family Agriculture:

Dakota Rural Action believes in family agriculture. Dakota Rural Action members work for open and fair markets and strongly support mandatory Country-of-Origin-Labeling. Dakota Rural Action supports fair trade agreements that build family agriculture, workers' rights and protect the environment.

Conservation:

Dakota Rural Action members work to conserve and protect both South Dakota's environment and our unique way of life. Dakota Rural Action works to protect ground water and air quality from pollution. Dakota Rural Action members support stronger protections from factory style animal agriculture facilities, which have destroyed local environments and communities. Dakota Rural Action works to remove the barriers to and promote the development of clean renewable energy sources like wind power and biofuels.
