César Chávez Day and
National Farm Worker Awareness Week

If you missed the Watsonville Public Library March 2016 showing of the documentary Food Chains: the revolution in America’s fields, you can still see the film! Check the library collection or ask for it. The film has soundtracks in English and Spanish.

This story is one of hope and promise of the triumph of morality over corporate greed to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a transparent food chain revealing the connection between farmworkers’ labor and the food we eat.
