On the Road with California Humanities Presents
The Farmworker Movement in California: From Chavez Onwards
Join California Humanities on Wednesday, September 28th at 7 p.m. at the Fresno Art Museum for the latest installment of their On the Road Series, which features Pulitzer Prize winners in dialogue with notable thinkers and the community, examining contemporary issues to guide California along the path to a vibrant future.
Fifty years ago, farmworkers in the San Joaquin Valley made history by winning the first union contracts in the field. The United Farm workers movement transformed the lives of thousands through many victories, but today, farmworkers are once again non-unionized, poorly paid, and poorly housed. The success and failures of the farm worker movement take on new relevance, and new urgency. This event will feature state and local community leaders in discussion around how the farmworker movement of the past can help inform the future of agriculture and organizing.
The event is FREE so don't miss out! Please also join us for the reception at 6 p.m. before the talk.
