Sacramento, California - Karen Ross, California Agriculture Secretary: "I want to make sure Californians know that the USDA has opened a discrimination claims process for Hispanic and women farmers that extends through March 25, 2013. In California, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency has announced a series of 13 meetings from October 10 through January 23, 2013 to provide more information about the process."
"Civil rights are a top priority for us all. Government agencies are committed to being model employers and premier services providers, and the USDA’s discrimination claims process is a fundamental example of that."
