Down to Earth

African Americans in agriculture have endured generations of discrimination and deceit that have resulted in the loss of countless families’ land and livelihoods. Attorney Jillian Hishaw helps farmers protect themselves, their families, and their property–through understanding the laws that affect them and doing smart long-term planning.
She’s founder of Family Agriculture Resource Management Services (F.A.R.M.S), a non-profit that provides legal and technical services to small farmers.
