It’s never been more important to share your views with elected officials and make a difference by joining with other Farm Bureau members.
Through Illinois Farm Bureau’s FB ACT (Farm Bureau Agricultural Contact Team) program, you will be asked to vote and to respond to Farm Bureau action requests by calling your elected officials on key agricultural issues, emailing and/or posting on social media. Being involved with legislative and political activities is a good way to build relationships with elected officials.
FB ACT offers an easy, effective way to advocate for agriculture and Farm Bureau. Whether you’re already part of FB ACT or just curious about the program, contact your county Farm Bureau and learn about the latest opportunities.
To join FB ACT, click here. You’ll find an online form to complete and submit. The information will be sent to the county Farm Bureau in your county of residence. IFB will contact you about your role as an FB ACT member.
You also may text the word "FARM" to 52886 to sign up and receive text messages when Farm Bureau needs you to act.
With the start of a new year comes many challenges. There is no time to waste. Join FB ACT today.
