The Harvest/La Cosecha
A Story of the Children Who Feed America
Every year more than 400,000 American children are torn away from their friends, schools, and homes to pick food we all eat. As migrant farm workers Zulema, Perla, and Victor sacrifice their own childhoods to help their families survive. The Harvest/La Cosecha profiles these children as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest.
Join the conversation with guest speaker: David Damian Figueroa, Vice President of MALDEF, former child laborer and community activist.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Seating is limited, on a first-come basis.
