East of Salinas takes us to the heart of California’s “Steinbeck Country,” the Salinas Valley, to meet a bright boy and his dedicated teacher — both sons of migrant farm workers. With parents who are busy working long hours in the fields, third grader Jose Ansaldo often turns to his teacher, Oscar Ramos, for guidance. But Jose is undocumented; he was born in Mexico. Like many other migrant children, he is beginning to understand the situation — and the opportunities that may be lost to him through no fault of his own.
Sponsored by MomsRising.org’s Good Food Force, Ecology Center, Civic Engagement Laboratory and Welcome. US for Immigrant Heritage Month. Light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.
