Come and listen to a panel of distinguished organizers and community leaders that have confronted exploitative employers and organized with H2A workers to fight for justice in the fields of WA State. Featuring:
Jeff Johnson, President of the WA State Labor Council representing over 400,000 unionized workers
David Bacon, a world renowned photo journalist, that has interviewed and photographed thousands of h2a workers in the U.S
The panel will be moderated by Michele Stelovich, President of the NW WA Labor Council based in Bellingham

In this 4th forum the speakers will lay out the link of H2A to the lack of just comprehensive immigration reform, and the impact H2A has on our state's local economies, jobs, communities and our food system. We welcome the co-sponsorship of the Racial Justice Coalition to also link H2A to the racist beginnings of corporate agriculture.
