Action This Morning to Support Our Farmworkers!

URGENT: Show up this morning (Tuesday) to support farmworkers!

Over the past year, local farmworker advocates have been in constructive dialogue with agriculture industry leaders to find common ground around how to improve working conditions for farmworkers.

CAUSE and MICOP and key industry leaders reached an agreement to support a $200k Ventura County Farmworker Resource Program, which would help farmworkers learn about their legal protections, resolve issues with their employers, and navigate public agencies.

Ventura County Supervisors Steve Bennett and John Zaragoza are now proposing this program to be included in next year’s budget, and have placed it on the Board of Supervisors agenda tomorrow morning. Continue reading “Action This Morning to Support Our Farmworkers!”

Join us Saturday for our Focus on Immigration Workshop and Mixer!

As Americans, Californians, and Indivisians, immigration issues are near and dear to our hearts. Daily, we are seeing heartbreaking news that affects our neighbors, our loved ones, our families, ourselves.

PLEASE NOTE VENUE CHANGE!

WHEN: Saturday, March 25, 3-5 pm
WHERE: North Oxnard United Methodist Church -1801 Joliet Pl, Oxnard
HELP US GET A HEAD COUNT: Let us know you’re coming (or interested) on our Facebook Event page or shoot us an email at indivisibleventura@gmail.com. Can’t commit? That’s okay too. Just show up – and bring your friends!

The toxic messages that are recklessly spewed out from the highest levels of our government have us and those we hold dear appalled and, in many cases, too frightened to carry out their daily lives.

When harassment starts from the top, it trickles down – creating an atmosphere in which children are too fearful to learn, families are fearful of being torn apart, and refugees have no hope of fleeing from dire circumstances in their homelands.

We invite you to join the Indivisible Ventura community as we learn from immigration activists about how we can help those that are most vulnerable through Indivisible action.
