    There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Farmworkers, the foundation of our fresh food industry, are routinely abused and robbed of wages. In extreme cases they can be beaten, sexually harassed or even enslaved – all within the borders of the United States. Join us as we explore how our actions have positive and negative effects on our global neighbors. We will also be providing fair & direct trade snacks and drinks and ATTENDANCE PRIZES!!!
