The Farmer Equity Act

The Farmer Equity Act (AB 1348) was created to increase support and access to resources and information for the growing number of socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers throughout California. Socially disadvantaged groups have been subjected to racial, ethnic or gender prejudice because of their identity as members of a group without regard to their individual qualities. Socially disadvantaged groups, as defined in AB 1348, are African Americans, Native Indians, Alaskan Natives, Hispanic, Latino/a, Asian Americans and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islander groups. Other historically underserved groups of farmers include urban farmers, veteran farmers, women farmers and LGBTQ farmers. Thea Rittenhouse is the CDFA Farmer Equity Advisor, a position created through this legislation.
