Event Type Teach-In
Organizer/Author
Every July day has Laborfest events, some of which are missing from the red letter listings. This "al fresco" textbook for all of us will teach the importance of a general strike which we need to put an end to the profit motive that is the cause of the budget "crisis" and war. On July 26, we learn about the lives of the people who grow, harvest and pack our food on the Farmworkers Reality Tour.

July 26 (Sunday) 3:00 - 9:00 PM ($25.00) Meet at surface parking lot at SJCC at the corner of Moorpark and Leigh Avenues. We will carpool to Watsonville
Human Agenda: Farmworkers Reality Tour
This tour will challenge participants to better understand the conditions of Mexican farmworkers in Northern California. We will drive to a field where a very low-income family will demonstrate how to harvest strawberries and then show us their very modest home. Then we will drive to the Buena Vista Migrant Labor Camp near Watsonville where farmworkers will share a look at their living quarters and give testimonies on their wages, working conditions, the use of pesticides, and the challenges their children have in receiving education. A farmworker meal is included in the cost.
$25 per Person – Check Payable to “Human Agenda”. Send to Human
Agenda Treasurer, 3845 Wellington Square, San Jose, CA 95136.
Proceeds go to farmworker families hosting the tour
