I was in over 100 degree weather in Sacramento on June 21st fasting with other Latina leaders such as Maria Echaveste, Maria Elena Durazo, Cindy Chavez, Lisa Maldonado, and amazing farm workers. The rolling fast is meant to send a message to Governor Jerry Brown--we want his signature! The Fair Treatment for Farm Workers bill is sitting on his desk and it would make it easier for farm workers to unionize.
Sweat was dripping from our faces as we stood outside of the Capitol building, but that was only a small taste of what farm workers endure all summer long in California's agricultural fields. I was reminded why I do what I do and why it is so important for our friends to remind our public leaders about the importance of protecting those who put their lives at risk to feed this nation and the world.
