Deconstructing Policy Surrounding Immigration and Farmworkers in Huron, CA
Led by Camili Leon Amarillas & Jesica Munoz
Huron, California. A city in the Fresno County where poverty, access to healthcare, and work present constant risks to the marginalized community. Our trip will focus on highlighting the intersectional issues faced by the community in Huron, with an emphasis on the struggles of the migrant and farmworker community. We will explore local policy and living conditions in this farm city to deconstruct the experiences of the individuals in this community. We will engage this work in a semester-long DeCal through detailed readings, discussions, and collaborative projects. To conclude our efforts, we will travel to Huron and engage with the community through service learning and by committing through this to be respectful, humble, and understanding of our privilege within the community.
