The Oregon Just Transition Alliance would like to thank Edgar Franks of Community to Community for spending time sharing local Just Transition strategies to build the new as we deepen our understanding of the bad.
Studies show that a farmworker doesn’t live past the age of 50 or 60; this is an example of the bad that the extractive economy brings to the life of a farmworker. Working in the field is extensive work and brings issues of wage theft, abuse towards women and children, pesticides, unhealthy housing, anti-immigration laws and more. Edgar shared how the #JustTransition fits in within farmworker organizing. “The economy that we are living in is very extractive not only to our earth, to all our resources, but to our bodies and our labor”.
For C2C building the new requires involving the real life experiences of farmworkers. To learn more about how C2C is utilizing People’s Movement Assemblies and Tribunals to meaningfully engage farmworkers to speak for themselves and seek the solutions that they will like to see in motion, check out the full video.
Join C2C, an organization that is striving to reclaim our humanity by redefining power in order to end settler colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy in their external and internalized forms.
