Gainesville recognizes National Farm Worker Awareness Week

By

Gainesville residents are coming together to bring attention to National Farm Worker Awareness week. Samuel Proctor Oral History Program Director Paul Ortiz says people are naive when it comes to farm labor.

“It touches us, you know wherever people eat vegetables or fruits… we may not be aware of it,” he says.

A panel discussing human trafficking will take place tonight at 7 p.m. in the Alachua County Library Headquarters.
