A farmworker meal is included in the cost. Ann Lopez will analyze the conditions of farmworkers on both sides of the border and sign copies of her newly released book, The Farmworkers’ Journey, at the discounted rate of $15. Check for $25 Payable to “Human Agenda”. Send to Human Agenda Treasurer, 3845 Wellington Square, San Jose, CA 95136. Proceeds go to farmworker families hosting the tour and a small
