#Resist: Learning from the Farm Workers Movement

The movement to eat clean, local and organic has been growing rapidly for the past several years, but what about the people who actually pick our food? In the next session of BK@24FPS #Resist Film Series we will explore the fight for labor rights by farm workers across the United States. We will look back to the 1960s with Delano Manongs on the Filipino pickers who started the famous grape boycott and a clip from Dolores, the timely documentary on the life of Dolores Huerta of UFW. We'll then flash forward to the present with Food Chains, an exposé on the deplorable conditions that forced Latino tomato pickers in Florida to join together and fight for better wages.
