In a time of shrinking civic space via online conferencing, it is striking that this year’s priority theme is “Women's full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”.

The importance of this theme has been well laid out by the UN’s own expert panel, with the December 2020 Report of the Secretary General emphasising that “Gender equality cannot be achieved unless public life and decision-making includes women and girls in all their diversity.” Perhaps even more importantly, the widespread failure to achieve this aim means that “policy outcomes are likely to be harmful and ineffective and to lead to the violation of women’s rights”.

In Hamilton County and LeFore county we will talk at 8pm on our publuc private partnetships and what we hope to accomplish after opening up with FAU Women and those the African Diaspora at 7pm.

Enclosed in the based document for our plan for The Black Folks Plan for Black Farmers. In the Black Folks Plan their is a $2T Plan of Action framework that we will bring forth on March 25th 2021. Today is about Women, Farming, Food and Hunger. By our estimate over $300B is avialable to meet these needs by the US Government in the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

Oklahoma is one of the leading (#5) sources of beef in the country and, not surprisingly, the production of beef cattle is the leading source of agricultural income in the state. We plan to create in Fort Coffee a specialized meat packing plant for America's 3.45M members of the Islamic faith.

The Pew Research Center estimates that there were about 3.45 million Muslims of all ages living in the U.S.A. in 2017, and that Muslims made up about 1.1% of the total U.S. population. They estimate that by 2050 that there will be 8.1m Muslims of all ages living in the United States of America.

Halal is a legal term that is central to Islamic law. It essentially means “permissible” or “lawful”. Halal meat is therefore meat that is permissible for Muslims to eat.
