El estado de la unión de la juventud Latinx

No hay agricultura en California sin la comunidad Latinx. Los agricultores latinx son el grupo demográfico de agricultores de más rápido crecimiento en California y constituyen la mayoría de la mano de obra agrícola en los Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, este grupo de agricultores y trabajadores agrícolas es silenciado al ser excluidos de las decisiones políticas a nivel nacional y estatal, con la reforma migratoria en un segundo plano, el miedo a la deportación como una experiencia cotidiana, sus hijos en la frontera en jaulas y separados de sus familias, siendo el objetivo de los políticos y del presidente Trump, como él los ha llamado, "violadores y narcotraficantes", estos agricultores viven en las regiones más devastadas económicamente de California y tienen desafíos para crecer, comenzar y hacer crecer su negocio agrícola. Aprenda lo que significa para sus descendientes y su futuro. Los panelistas compartirán sus experiencias en el sistema alimentario local y hablarán sobre la exclusión intencional de su voz y comunidad como profesionales y agricultores y brindarán soluciones para un futuro mejor.

 

The Latinx Youth’s State of the Union

There is no agriculture in California without the Latinx community. Latinx farmers are the fastest-growing demographic of farmers in California and make up the majority of farm labor in the United States. Yet, this group of farmers and farm workers is silenced by being excluded from policy decisions at the national and state level. With immigration reform on the back burner, the fear of deportation as an everyday lived experience, their children at the border in cages and separated from their families, they are furthermore targeted by politicians and President Trump who has called them “rapists and drug dealers.” These farmers live in the most economically devastated regions of California and have challenges starting and growing their farming businesses. Learn about what this means for their descendants and their future. Panelists will share their experiences in the local food system. They will speak to the intentional exclusion of their voice and community as professionals and farmers and will provide solutions for a better future.
