FARM LABOR: The Human Cost of Your Food
Saturday, July 24, 6:30pm and Sunday, July 25, 1:30pm MST
Flatirons Food Film Festival & Boulder County Farmers Markets present a virtual weekend film series.
We often talk about the role of farmers when it comes to our food supply. But farm workers are unsung heroes who are also essential to our food supply. They provide the back-breaking labor to till, seed, and harvest. Farm Labor: The Human Cost of Your Food addresses issues related to farm workers and minority farmers through two documentaries, Dolores and Food Chains, and post-film discussions.
Systemic inequality pervades US agriculture as much as other American sectors and institutions. Farm workers are predominantly brown and often migrants. While not all farm businesses exploit their workers, enough farms have done so that there has been a historic and current need for labor organizers and unions that fight back. Minority farmers also experience pervasive discrimination.
Join us in our exploration of farm labor organizing and minority farmers.
