The 4th RAP Summit will dive into the solution of connecting Plant Based Companies with Farmers. Leading the Plant Based Conversation will be Carl Jorgensen, Animal Agriculture Consultant for the Plant Based Food Association. We will explore the need for Domestic Sourcing of ingredients for farmers, the need to move away from dependence on long global Supply Chains to shorter domestic supply networks, and our panel will be committed to including the conversation about the dire need to help Indigenous and Black farmers who have historically been marginalized in terms of access to markets.

Hosts: Renee King-Sonnen and Jane Velez Mitchell

The Rancher Advocacy Program (RAP) Summit is a convergence of trailblazers interested in creating solutions for farmers and ranchers. RAP, a Rowdy Girl Sanctuary Program, has spent the last six years supporting ranchers and their families as they come to grips with the devastating reality of animal agriculture; concurrently, we have been developing key relationships with organizations, entrepreneurs, academics, and investors keen on transitioning animal farms away from traditional methods. How can farmers thrive on their land without using animals? We will have critical conversations with expert panelists and farmers in transition from all over the world–and together we will push the needle ever further in the direction of solving this question. The imminent concerns around food, the economy, the animals, and climate will take all of us working together to reframe the vegan proposition and bring farmers and ranchers to the marketplace of ideas.

A round-table (solution oriented) conversation with: Ranchers in Transition, Plant-Based Industry Leaders, Veganic Farmers, Animal & Climate Activists, Film Makers and Trail Blazers.
