Farm workers are marching to win the right to vote for a union free from intimidation and threats. This march is to convince Gov. Gavin Newsom to sign the Agricultural Labor Relations Voting Choice Act (AB 2183-Stone). The bill would give more choices to farm workers so they can vote free from intimidation. Farm workers would be able to vote in secret whenever and wherever they feel safe.
Farm worker leaders voted to march at this critical time and chose to end the march on Friday August 26. This is the day which Gov. Newsom declared “California Farmworker Day”— right after vetoing a similar bill last year. Farm workers say they don’t need empty recognition, the best way to mark this day is to enact this crucial farm worker bill.
The march will begin daily at 7am. Join us then, along the route, or at the rally at the end of the day. On Friday, August 26, join hundreds of farm workers and supporters as we march the last mile from Sacramento’s Southside park to the big finish at the capitol.
