IRLE Working Group Meeting: From Braceros to H2A’s: Discussing the History, Present and Future of Agricultural Guestworker Programs in California
October 6, 2017•11:30 am – 1:00 pm
IRLE working group From Braceros to H2A’s: Discussing the History, Present and Future of Agricultural Guestworker Programs in California will have its second meeting to plan for the year.
The aim of this group is to organize an event in the Salinas Valley that brings together leading scholars, journalists, and students on the Bracero Program with leaders in the agricultural industry, and elected officials to discuss the legacies of the Bracero Program 1942-1964, and the current workings of the H2-A guest worker program, or “New Bracero Program.” We aim to create a space for dialogue between researchers, agricultural employers, elected officials, students and community members. After the event, we will produce a white paper on best practices and policies.
Faculty and students from all departments are welcome to attend and join the group.
