Farmworker, business, policy, and research leaders will share on-the-ground perspectives on the current farm labor landscape in California. As the state with the highest number of agricultural workers, 75% of whom are immigrants, we will explore how California can lead the nation in providing healthy, safe, just, and equitable working conditions and how engaged community members can support these efforts.
