"Legislative Advocacy"

I was privileged to work with UFW of Texas to advocate at the Texas Legislature on behalf of farmworkers.  While never successful in creating an Agricultural Labor Relations Board, significant legislation was enacted regarding pesticides, clean water and sanitation, and the elimination of the short handled hoe among other issues.  Many faith based and non faith based groups collaborated in these efforts.
