Hardwood Leaders Visit D.C. to Share Impact of Trade War

Earlier this week 22 hardwood leaders visited Washington D.C. to meet with a number U.S. Senators and staff to share the impacts the current U.S. – China trade war is having on their businesses, employees, and communities (see full list below). The group also met with senior staff from U.S.D.A. and the Vice President’s office.

The Hardwood Federation is in the process of following up with offices and will be working to generate bi-partisan outreach to the President and U.S.D.A advocating for financial support for the industry as this dispute continues.

The Hardwood Federation is requesting that members of the wood flooring industry continue to reach out to Congress and share their stories. The Contact Congress tool is a quick and easy way to communicate with elected officials: http://hardwoodfederation.wildapricot.org/Action-Center
