farmers and farmworkers – and the market economy

A new brief from the excellent “Food First”

“The same market economy that compels the intensification and consolidation of agricultural land in the United States has also pushed farmers off their land, depressed local economies, and driven mass migration across Latin America. The new brief from Food First, Unbroken Connection to the Land, highlights the interlocking destinies of farmers and farmworkers and the ways we can resist the exploitation of migrant farmworkers while furthering a restorative land ethic.”

This is Food First’s 8th installment in their Dismantling Racism in the Food System series.
