Our  mission

The Land Loss Prevention Project (LLPP) was founded in 1982 by the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers to curtail epidemic losses of Black owned land in North Carolina.  LLPP was incorporated in the state of North Carolina in 1983.  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.

indexLLPP’s advocacy for financially distressed and limited resource farmers involves action in three separate arenas:  litigation, public policy, and promoting sustainable agriculture and environment.

Activity in the litigation arena typically involves debt restructuring for farmers in crisis and other legal work.  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.  LLPP is committed to working alongside state, regional and national coalitions who support sustainable agriculture practices, development and policy innovations.  It is part of LLPP’s organizational strategy to integrate policy and programmatic work into the issue areas addressed in litigation.
