Since then, BFAA has been the principal, bricks and mortar office and headquarters of the longstanding mobilization efforts around what has come to be known as the Black Farmer Movement.
For its part, BFAA carried out, and still carries, the day-to-day tasks associated with maintaining a functioning field office for the movement.
Additionally, BFAA leadership traveled the South extensively, raising awareness about the lawsuit and encouraging farmers to testify during the listening sessions that led up to and comprised a significant amount of the farmer testimony of the Civil Rights Action Team (CRAT) Report.
While these and the broader law suit efforts were underway, BFAA worked as the organization with the most visible presence.
First Union and Wachovia began conversations with the BFAA and the Land Loss Prevention Project in June of this year as part of their Community Commitment.
With 21 state chapters across the country, BFAA works in conjunction with other groups for the survival of African-American farmers, landowners and communities.
The group was formed to encourage continued persistence of black farmers to re-claim their land and farms and to pursue the legal and political actions against the United States Department of Agriculture for what the BFAA says is discrimination against and deprivation of black and minority farmers.
