Sophie Ackoff is the co-executive director of the National Young Farmers Coalition, which is a national advocacy network of young farmers fighting for the future of agriculture.

In this podcast episode, Sophie sheds light on the challenges that young people uniquely face, especially Black, Indigenous, and young people of color, when trying to become farmers and food producers; the distinction between farmworkers and farmers, and how we might go about addressing the injustices of land access in this country; and more.
