State and Local Government Honor Farm Worker Awareness Week

Governor Ted Kulongoski’s Proclamation designating March 29 to April 4 “Farm Worker Awareness Week” and recognizing both the contribution of farm workers to Oregon’s well-being and the continuing struggle for justice in the work place will be presented at a public ceremony at the state capitol in Salem at noon on Tuesday, March 31, the birthday of farm labor organizer Cesar Chavez.  For the first time, similar proclamations have been issued by the Multnomah County Commissioners and the Portland City Council, adding further legitimacy to the farm worker movement.
