Please join us for Part II of our two part series on Disaster Preparedness and Response: Serving Farmworkers. Part II will focus on identifying resources and collaborating.

Description

If you’re wondering: What can states do in advance of a natural disaster to ensure farmworkers are served? What are the particular needs of farmworkers during and after a natural disaster and how is agriculture affected? If a natural disaster hits, what federal, state, and local resources are available to serve farmworkers? These questions and more will be addressed during this webinar.
