Racial & Gender Impacts

Farmers of color often lack financial support most acutely as they more commonly don't contract with big corporations in order to control the types of crops they grow. For example, over 1 in 3 white-owned farms receive financial support in the form of direct payments compared to 1 in 4 Black-owned farms, 1 in 6 Latino-owned and Native American-owned farms, and 1 in 8 Asian-owned farms.


Also, if the world's female farmers had the same access to resources as men 150 million people could be lifted out of poverty, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.
