Stronger Protections for Farm Workers
We recently joined a delegation of farmworkers and youth who traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with members of Congress and the US EPA to ask them for a stronger pesticide laws.
The US EPA just proposed a new Worker Protection Standard to strengthen those laws. But they're not strong enough. For example, the new rules would allow 16- and 17-year old workers to mix, load and apply pesticides.
We know that you don't want unsafe pesticides on your food, and neither do farmworkers.
Take Action: Speak up for safer fields, safer food and safer farmworker families.
