How to Help Protect Farmworker Safety Amidst California's Wildfires

How to Help Protect Farmworker Safety Amidst California's Wildfires

California's wildfires just won't stop.

The flames have put lives and homes at risk, without regard to neighborhood or class.

But the smoke is impacting one group of Californians disproportionately:  farmworkers in the fields of California's central coast.

How to help protect farmworker safety

Donate to the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) and the Mixteco/Indígena Community Organizing Project (MICOP), two of the groups buying and distributing protective masks for people working in smoke-laden fields.

Call upon the leader of California's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA), Juliann Sum (510.286.7000), to reopen Cal/OSHA's regional offices and provide masks to farmworkers.

Tweet @ the official leadership of Ventura County to urge them to make resources on Ventura County's disaster preparedness website (ReadyVenturaCounty.org) available in Spanish, not just English.
