Farm workers to march 335 miles to CA state capitol for Ag Voting Choice Act

On Wednesday August 3rd, farm workers will launch a 24-day, 335-mile “March for the Governor’s Signature” from the UFW’s historic Delano CA 40 Acres. They will arrive Friday August 26th at the state capitol in Sacramento.Will you join them by…

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. To see the route for this historic march or peregrinacion — through 24 valley cities and towns — click here.

You can be part of this historic peregrinacion, whether in person or virtually. Click to: sign up to march, attend rallies, sign the petition and/or bookmark the campaign page to learn more stay updated on the latest developments.

PS: In addition, help spread the word about the march by sharing on Twitter and Facebook.

Invitation to Latino and Latina Roundtable Virtual Meeting – Sat., July 23 from 1 -3 pm

This is your invitation to the Latino and Latina Roundtable Membership Meeting this Saturday, July 23 from 1 -3 pm via zoom.  Given some of the increases in covid cases, the membership meeting will be virtual and hope that the next one can be face-to-face or hybrid.  Given that our organizational work has been moving forward in the implementation of our strategic plan, the various committees will give short reports regarding the challenges (or threats) that they are facing, the opportunities in the work of the committee, what has been done up to this point in the work, and where we will be by December.  With the mid-term elections coming up, it is important to connect as much as possible to the conditions that are developing and the challenges and opportunities developing from those conditions.  At the same time, we will look for links between our different areas of work as to how they advance the development of the Latino and Latina Roundtable.  The link for the Saturday meeting is:  https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89452435261
