Savi put many things into perspective, and helped us understand the severity of systemic discrimination; then and now. Joe Schroeder was the in-house Farm Advocate for Farm Aid, overseeing the hotline and working to connect farmers to the resources and organizations that could help. Like Savi, Joe is straight and to the point; explaining several origins of farm crisis, and how the situation today is similar and different from the crisis of the eighties.

Farm Aid wishes him well and continues to work with the passion Joe did to bring new farm advocates to the movement.
