Farmworker Justice Wine and Jazz Reception
October 18, 2016, 6pm to 8:30pm
AFL-CIO Building, 815 16th St., Gompers Hall
Thank you for celebrating our 35th year of serving farmworkers and their organizations with us. This year we were pleased to have jazz vibraphonist Chuck Redd and his band play during our reception. During the event, we honored Tirso Moreno, the General Coordinator of the Farmworker Association of Florida. Mr. Moreno emigrated from Mexico, labored as a migrant farmworker, and has built an impactful statewide organization of farmworkers and their families. Farmworker Justice for many years has collaborated with Mr. Moreno and the Association, which is based in Apopka and has five offices around the state.
Your support for the Wine & Jazz Reception helps Farmworker Justice meet the demand for the advocacy, training, litigation and other support for efforts to improve wages and working conditions, immigration policy, health and access to health care, and access to justice.
