Location Details
TEDx rules limit the conference to no more than 100 in-person attendees, but we can have as many virtual attendees as we’d like. You can get involved by inviting likeminded members of your community to watch the live webcast together – and join a unique conversation that we hope will spark real change. To host or attend a viewing party, visit www.tedxfruitvale.org/viewing-parties.

TEDxFruitvale will bring together farmworkers, farmers, activists, artists, students, professors, filmmakers, and entrepreneurs to celebrate the people upon whom we depend to harvest our food. In three sessions, titled Meet, Movement, and Money, 18 speakers will provide a 360-degree view of farmworkers today and throughout history; compare labor’s progress with other social justice movements; and end by discussing fair labor practices from a business standpoint. Three special musical guests will perform for each session.
