3. One Year Since Our 50-Mile Regulation Protest
“Seasonal farm work shouldn’t mean seasonal school work.”
– Kaveh Danesh, PhD Candidate in Economics at the 50-mile regulation protest, December 9, 2016.
More than a year ago, F.E.P. and supporters protested the California Department of Housing and Community Development's 50-mile regulation that forces farm workers to move at least 50 miles from the labor camps when the growing season ends, uprooting families and school children. Today, that regulation is still in place despite the burden it places on these families and the interruption it causes to their children’s education.
