Look West Podcast with Assemblymember Rivas & Dolores Huerta on Farm Worker Housing

Friday, May 31, 2019

Since being elected as your Assemblymember in 2018, one of my priorities has always been to recognize and fight for farmworker families. My latest bill, AB 1783, seeks to provide stable, safe housing opportunities for those who work so hard to thrive in these conditions.

Civil rights icon Dolores Huerta was on hand for the vote and praised the effort to build housing for California’s farmworkers: “I applaud Assemblyman Rivas for taking a bold stand to protect our farmworkers. He is right – our farmworker communities are facing a humanitarian crisis. AB 1783 can serve as the foundation of a broad movement to build housing for our workers.” Listen to our conversation about AB 1783 on my podcast below.
