Dianne Feinstein Awarded by the UFW Foundation

Dianne Feinstein is receiving the United Farm Workers Foundation’s “Fair Harvest Champion Award” for her leadership on the historic Agricultural Job Opportunities, Benefits and Security Act (AgJOBS) that will positively change the lives of over a million farm workers and their families. The AgJOBS bill represents a major compromise between the United Farm Workers and major agricultural employers to address the immigration crisis and the impoverished existence that American farm workers are forced to live.

For more information about the AgJOBS bill please go to www.fwjustice.org.
