Embedded Racism on the Farm

Embedded Racism on the Farm: Labor Law, Immigration, and the Fight for Farmworkers’ Rights
Thursday, April 22, 2021     6:00-7:30 p.m. ET

The next installment in Vermont Law School’s Embedded Racism in the Law virtual panel series features attorneys and organizers who serve and advocate on behalf of farmworkers. Join us as we examine how the legacy of discriminatory Jim Crow-era policies persists in agricultural workers’ intentional exclusion from labor protections and discuss how farmworkers and their advocates are fighting to improve working conditions, immigration status, and access to justice.

Featuring: Laurie Beyranevand, Professor and Director, Center for Agriculture and Food Systems (moderator); Iris Figueora, Director of Economic and Environmental Justice, Farmworker Justice; Abel Luna, Migrant Justice; and Juan Perea, Curt and Linda Rodin Professor of Law and Social Justice, Loyola University Chicago School of Law.
