Fresh sweet berries are nature’s candy, or so we like to think. But there’s nothing natural about the inhumane treatment experienced by the farmworkers responsible for bringing those berries to your table. For years, farmworkers have been struggling over poor wages and mistreatment at Sakuma Brothers Farms, a corporate seller to the world’s largest berry supplier, Driscoll. Now they’re engaged in a national boycott of both corporations’ products.

Join us for a conversation with farmworker and union activist Alfredo “Lelo” Juarez, and community organizer Edgar Franks from Move to Amend and Community to Community Development on the fight to expand democracy and procure human rights for migrant farmworkers.
