30 Brave Minutes

Migrant Farmworkers

September 16, 2020

Panel for Migrant Farmworker Episode

About 150,000 migrant farmworkers and their dependents are in North Carolina during each growing season, yet they are an invisible population to the public eye. This invisibility contributes to their lack of access to appropriate healthcare, education, and social services. In this podcast, we invite Dr. Brooke Kelly, Professor of Sociology, and Dr. Michele Fazio, Professor of English, to discuss their effort to increase the visibility of this population for their students. Through their class, students engage with the farmworkers in their area, find ways to serve them, and write grant proposals to request more resources for this population. One of their students, Jessica Muniz, also joins us to discuss her experience as a student in the course.
