Protect Northwest farmworkers from extreme heat
August 2, 2021

Summer fruits and veggies abound with flavor and beauty, but this year’s extreme heat also means that it’s extra challenging and dangerous for farmworkers around the country. We can all be grateful for the hard work it takes for many different workers and industries to make food readily available to us in stores and markets, and we can express that gratitude by supporting efforts to protect farmworks with a national heat stress standard.
