Interview: What’s Next For the Farmworker Movement?


Even before the death of United Farm Workers co-founder Cesar Chavez in 1993, California's farm labor movement had lost its momentum. That's according to Pultizer Prize wining author Miriam Pawel, who will participate in a panel discussion about the past and future of ag labor in Fresno on Wednesday. The event, which is presented by the group Cal Humanities as part of their On The Road Series specifically looks at the history of the movement post-Chavez, and how organizing technique of the past can influence tomorrow's leaders. She joined us on Valley Edition to talk about the present state of the UFW, the ALRB and rights for those who work in the fields.
