Event Details

Read powerful words from indigenous campesinos in the new report by California Institute for Rural Studies: “Experts in their Fields: Contributions and Realities of Indigenous Campesinos in California During COVID-19.” 

915 surveys and 63 in-depth interviews provide critical missing information on California farmworkers’ abilities to protect themselves and their families during the pandemic: https://cirsinc.org/covid-19-farmworker-study/

I wouldn’t know what to do if someone in my family got sick because I don’t have an extra room… We only live in a trailer, all crowded..

–NATIVIDAD, 25 year old Triqui woman, Central Coast

 

I hurt myself two weeks ago, I fell off a ladder. Now they have me cleaning the little weeds around the tree for hours because I can’t pick right now because of my hand…and now I am fighting with the workers’ compensation insurance company to get help since I am working less.

–ABELINO, 29 year old Mixtec man, Central Coast

 

…I would like them to change the water [because] it tastes very salty when I drink the water. It does not take away my thirst.

–PRUDENCIA, 35year old Mixtec woman, Central Coast

 

…We just want to leave a little earlier. It’s getting very hot, 104 degrees.

–EVERARDO, 26 year old Indigenous man, San Joaquin Valley
