What’s Happening at NHLA:

Hardwood Leaders Tell Their Stories to Congress 

Earlier this week 22 hardwood leaders traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with a number of U.S. Senators and staff to share the devastating impacts the current U.S./China trade war is having on their businesses, employees and communities. (View List Here) The group also met with senior staff from U.S.D.A. and the Vice President’s office. The stories shared were incredibly impactful, bringing home just how serious the situation has become for so many businesses. With so many industries suffering loses from the ongoing dispute, it is more important than ever to make our voices heard.

The Hardwood Federation is in the process of following up with offices and will be working to generate bi-partisan outreach to the President and U.S.D.A. advocating for financial support for the industry as this dispute continues. The calls for action will be amplified by industry pressure and participation.

If you have not already done so, we encourage you to reach out to your members of Congress and share your story. The Contact Congress tool is a quick and easy way to communicate with elected officials.

We are all facing a tough battle, but NHLA and the Hardwood Federation are continuing to battle.
