Savi Horne on the Land Loss Prevention Project – 844-292-1318 North Carolina legal aid

Savi Horne on the Land Loss Prevention Project

Savi Horne, Executive Director of the Land Loss Prevention Project (LLPP), discusses the organization’s history and efforts to help North Carolina’s financially distressed farmers.

The Land Loss Prevention Project (LLPP) was founded in 1982 by the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers to stop epidemic losses of Black owned land in North Carolina. The organization broadened its mission in 1993 to provide legal support and assistance to all financially distressed and limited resource farmers and landowners in North Carolina.

The LLPP is unique in that it is the only non-profit law firm in the state as well as the country that provides both expansive direct legal assistance to farmers and landowners in a variety of practice areas while maintaining a focus on agricultural law. The LLPP is distinguished in the state’s legal community by its 30 years of expertise in farm credit programs and farm foreclosure, farm related federal bankruptcy law and agriculture-based business development law and finance. The organization provides essential legal services to the state’s agriculture community.

LLPP’s advocacy also includes work on public policy and promoting sustainable agriculture and environment. On the public policy front, LLPP monitors agricultural policy and the impact it has on North Carolina’s small family farmers. Finally, LLPP helps family farmers and landowners develop sustainable agricultural practices that are environmentally friendly and economically viable for their rural communities.

We spoke with Savi Horne, executive director of LLPP, about why their work is so important and how crucial it is that minority and limited resource farmers be able to access the opportunity the Good Food Movement represents.
