The USDA has long used the term "socially disadvantaged" farmer and "historically underserved" farmer. Many call USDA "the peoples' department," but we refer to it more accurately as "the last plantation." While on the surface, the class action suits Pigford I and II would suggest that things have changed and that farmers prevailed, we believe that nothing has changed. Under Secretary Tom Vilsack, who served two terms under President Obama, there is substantial evidence that institutional racism, sexism, and other abusive behavior discrimination went unchanged. Some will tell you that their Civil Rights administration is the best ever at the USDA. Unfortunately, facts differ from that false narrative. A current example of civil rights offenses is the USDA Forest Service, western division, in which harassment and sexual perpetrations continue (see podcast below). This workshop, then, provides a current update as the dysfunctional behavior within the Office of Civil Rights and how farmers and employees continue to be harmed.
