FB ACT: Making Political Contacts

Being an Advocate for Ag Just Got Easier!

 Here's something you already know… every day, politicians and regulators make decisions that impact the way you farm.  Here's something you may have overlooked though… politics have changed - a lot!  Don't feel discouraged.  You can take back your influence in Washington, Springfield, and even your own backyard with Illinois Farm Bureau's FB ACT program.

FB ACT (Farm Bureau Agricultural Contact Team) started as a group of men and women who had an interest in the legislative process.  That used to work.  Today, your voice can easily be drowned out by others speaking out against you.

When you join FB ACT, you are expected to do two things:  vote and respond to action requests by emailing or calling your elected officials on key agricultural issues.  Your involvement in additional activities will help to build your relationship with your elected officials and make these tasks easier, but most find these two tasks to be pretty simple ways to protect their farms.  The FB ACT program also helps you find a comfortable, effective way to become an advocate with POW!  Maybe it's emailing your legislator after you've put the kids to bed or speaking about an agricultural issue to your church group.

Whether you are already an FB ACT member or just curious about the program, call your county Farm Bureau and learn what new opportunities await for you. Learn how you can act today and win tomorrow.

Your To Do List

Program your phones!
It is time to program your phone.  Make sure that you have the contact information for your newly elected legislators programmed in your phones.

Get to know your legislators!
Do your legislators know you on a first name basis?  If not, it is time to foster that relationship and become a resource for your legislators on the state and federal level.
