Take action on Farmworkers Bill of Rights

SBCAN is joining with CAUSE (Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy) in asking the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors to pass a Farmworker Bill of Rights.

Please add your voice to this call for action today! Please email: SupervisorCarbajal@sbcbos1.orgjwolf@countyofsb.orgdfarr@countyofsb.orgpeter.adam@countyofsb.org, and steve.lavagnino@countyofsb.org.

Here is a sample message:

"Hi. My name is __________ and I am a Santa Barbara County resident. I support CAUSE's proposed Farmworker Bill of Rights because I am concerned with the working conditions of farmworkers in Santa Barbara County. Farmworkers do one of the most difficult, dangerous and underpaid jobs in our community and they deserve humane treatment. Please do everything in the county’s power to set and enforce basic standards to prevent extreme overwork, wage theft, and health and safety problems in our fields. Please put the Farmworker Bill of Rights on your agenda by Cesar Chavez Day March 31. Thank you."
