Campesinas’ Reflections

February 8, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Food Law Poster-Campesinas' Reflections

Monday, February 8 | 12:00PM -1:00PM |Wasserstein Hall, WCC B015

Campesinas’ Reflections is a talk by female farmworkers and members of the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas.  The campesinas scheduled to speak are Dolores Bustamante, Hormis Bedolla, and Beatriz Gatica.

They will speak about:

  • The people who labor to produce our food are essential to our daily lives yet rarely even considered;
  • The physical dangers of pesticide exposure and sexual harassment, the systemic disadvantages imposed by wage, healthcare, and immigration laws and more; and
  • the presence and contributions of female farmworkers–particularly women of color whose first language is not English.

This even is co-hosted by The Harvard Food Law Society, Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic, La Alianza, WLA Venture Fund, and the American Constitution Society at Harvard Law School. Lunch will be provided.
