Extra! Extra! Student Lobby Day this Month in Washington, DC on the Farm Bill!

This just in from our friends at Oxfam America - if you want to go, the info is below!  Senators and representatives constantly say that they a.) want to hear more from young people and b.) that students are voices that they pay special attention to.  Your voice matters!
