PRESS RELEASE Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association BB #:153753 has been fighting hard for trade relief measures that will stop the two decades of harm done to Florida farmers by cheap Mexican imports flooding the U.S. during Florida’s season.
It’s important to continue to push our message if we want changes: The devastation to the Florida produce industry under NAFTA will only grow worse under USMCA, with losses reaching levels that will put Florida producers’ survival at risk.
We need your help spreading the word on social media. Proponents of USMCA staged a “Pass #USMCAnow Day” on Wednesday. To counter that, FFVA is designating today – Friday, July 12 – as #FairTradeForFarmers Day.
We have prepared a convenient social media toolkit with pre-written Twitter posts and graphics for you to use. We urge you to post several times throughout the day tomorrow.
We encourage you to tailor these posts to suit your experience and your crops. We’re also asking two additional things: (1) Spread the word to your colleagues, friends, family and business partners; and (2) retweet others’ posts if you see them.
