It’s time for President Obama to protect bees from pesticides before it’s too late.

On March 18th, we celebrate #AgDay. For many years, industrial agriculture interests have tried to make it theirs. Now let's reclaim it for bees, beekeepers and other pollinators that keep our food and farming system healthy and vibrant.

In a June 20, 2014 memorandum, President Obama recognized that bees and other pollinators play a critical role in our agricultural economy, our food system and the ecosystem. Unfortunately, bees continue to suffer incredible losses, more than a third each year.

After a more than a two month delay, the White House has yet to issue a plan of action. The President and his task force have the power and responsibility to protect pollinators. And our nation’s food system depends on it.

Please join me on #AgDay in calling on the President Obama and his White House Task Force to take swift and meaningful action to protect bees and other pollinators from the threat of hazardous pesticides.
