Lori Flores, PhD, Assistant Professor of History at Stony Brook University (SUNY), joins The Farm Report to discuss her book: Grounds for Dreaming: Mexican Americans, Mexican Immigrants, and the California Farmworker Movement. Grounds for Dreaming is "a sweeping critical history of how Mexican communities in agricultural California fought for equality and respect in a hostile climate of labor repression and xenophobia." Flores, and host Holli Cederholm, explore the history of the farmworker movement in the U.S., while taking a pulse on present day farmworker conditions and the need for immigration and labor policy reform.
