Advocacy

 
OTA serves as the voice of the U.S. organic industry on Capitol Hill. OTA advances its mission to promote and protect organic agriculture and trade through legislative and regulatory advocacy.  As the only trade association working on behalf of the organic sector, OTA builds and retains meaningful relationships with Members of Congress and their staff.  We also work closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program, the National Organic Standards Board, and the Food and Drug Administration on food and farming policy. 
 
Located at the landmark Hall of States building in Washington, D.C., the OTA headquarters is within view of the Capitol, and only a block from Union Station, where you can hop on trains in and out of the city.  If you’re an OTA member, what's ours is yours—please consider OTA’s D.C. office and Government Affairs staff as your own while you are in town.
