How we can help farm workers facing environmental challenges?
Jose Oliva Jose Oliva

We will be sharing some ways we can all help after the Q & A session
Antonio Tovar
01:24:57
Thank you Teo. Impressing work you are doing. The Food System is broken from button to top. USA waste 40% of their food, mainly because the crop is to cheap or too "ugly" to sale in the market. Supermarkets also throw produce who look bad. It is a funnel workers, and also small growers are making less while processing corporations make most of the money. Unsustainable because the philosophy of go big means destroy more. Right now the EPA stop enforcing environment law. Grassroot organizing and Alliances like this should keep the pressure, because the other option is totalitarianism.
