This will be updated as new notices come in.

Farm worker assistance

Help the people who feed us here:

This is a farm in Camarillo. And workers.

(From Martha Martinez-Bravo) Marginalized communities are the most impacted by natural disasters like our local California fires, due to the lack of resources…employers not only expect their farm workers to work during these hazardous conditions but they don’t always provide masks as protection. Grassroot and non-profit organizations have stepped in to distribute masks. During the Camarillo Springs fire, workers were fired for leaving during the fire.

Our farm workers feed us. They are valuable, they are loved, and should be respected. Please donate to 805 Undocufund. They are an exceptional organization whom I support. They were also the recipient of a peace award for our county.

Where to get information. Where to donate money, item, service – Where to get help.
