“That’s why organizations like the Missouri Rural Crisis Center are so important,” said Secretary Reich.

What a great Sunday afternoon! 50 MRCC members had a chance to meet and talk about many challenges facing family farmers and rural communities and discuss real solutions, with former Labor Secretary and author Robert Reich!

Secretary Reich came to a mid-Missouri farm to discuss his highly anticipated new book, Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few, and to hear from farmers and rural Missourians about the destructive effects of corporate factory farms and monopolistic control of agriculture on our farming operations, our communities, our economy, our food and our democracy.
