As Watsonville goes, so goes California -- and beyond.
Our town is a draw for immigrants,known in Mexico as offering work in the fields. Primarily an agricultural town that is 85% Latino, we struggle with all the issues of legal and illegal immigration: human rights, health, welfare, labor, racism, water, pesticide use, education, sustainable living, housing, transportation, cost of living, etc.
WILPF/LIMPAL will present events each month that are designed to spark awareness and promote ways to take action on issues that are at the heart of our town, our homes, and our families.
