Immigration Reform is a hot topic in Washington, and an issue that can be explored in Adams County's agricultural community. Migrant farm workers make up a significant portion of the local labor force. This trip will explore the link between our nation's food supply and immigration, as well as the challenges that migrant families face.
Participants will learn about everyday life for migrant individuals by visiting local social service agencies, meeting with families, visiting the agricultural sector, meeting with local advocacy groups, exploring educational services and volunteering at the Campus Kitchen.
The group will stay in a lodge at a local camp, sharing cooking and other responsibilities. Transportation will be provided through College vans, driven by a College-certified driver.
