Too Close to Slavery: Essential Labor in California Agriculture
At Sacramento State, the Center on Race, Immigration, and Social Justice (CRISJ) hosted a zoom forum Too Close to Slavery: Essential Workers in California Agriculture on April 7th, 2021.
Farm labor conditions are harsh in California agriculture, and became even more so during the pandemic period — as the COVID 19 infections have hit hard farm workers given their housing and working circumstances. This forum addressed farm workers' labor conditions, their centrality to the wealth of California, what can be done to improve their lives beyond the fields, and what are some of the immediate resources available to them and to their advocates.
Featured scholars, community leaders, and artists who through their work help us understand, empathize and mobilize on behalf of farm working communities.
