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.

Farm Aid started as a benefit concert on September 22, 1985, in Champaign, Illinois, held to raise money for family farmers in the United States. The concert was organized by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young, spurred on by Bob Dylan’s comments at Live Aid earlier in that year that he hoped some of the money would help American farmers in danger of losing their farms through mortgage debt.[1]

The first concert was at University of Illinois’ Memorial Stadium in Champaign on September 25 before a crowd of 80,000 people. Performers included Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, B.B. King, Roy Orbison, among others,[2] and raised over million for America’s family farmers.[3]

Nelson and Mellencamp then brought family farmers before Congress to testify about the state of family farming in America. Congress subsequently passed the Agricultural Credit Act of 1987 to help save family farms from foreclosure. Today, Farm Aid is an organization that works to increase awareness of the importance of family farms, and puts on an annual concert of country, blues and rock music with a variety of stars. The board of directors includes Nelson, Mellencamp, Young, and Dave Matthews. Young’s speeches about the environment are a highlight of the annual shows. After the initial concert, the organization established emergency hot lines for farmers and farm associations. Farm Aid holds a farm disaster fund for farmers who lost their belongings and crops through natural disasters, such as the victims of Hurricane Katrina[4] and the 2011 tornadoes. The funds raised are used to pay the farmer’s expenses and provide food, legal and financial help, and psychological assistance.[5]

The 2005 concert, marking the 20th anniversary of Farm Aid, took place at the Tweeter Center in Tinley Park, Illinois, with events in downtown Chicago as well. The 2007 Concert took place at Randall’s Island in New York City (1st Farm Aid in New York) and was recorded in High Definition to be broadcast on HDNet as a 2 Hour Special highlighting many of the performances from the Allman Brothers and Counting Crows to John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson.
