(En Español) Join us for the Environmental Justice Symposium, hosted by Farmworker Justice. This free, virtual event will bring attendees together to learn and discuss different aspects of climate change and its impact on farmworker health. Topics to be discussed include heat stress, water access, and more. Participants will hear from a variety of experts, share experiences and recommendations, and come away with actionable strategies to address the impacts of the climate change crisis on farmworkers and their families.
