Notification Now! Online Zoom News Conference

Calls Mount for Advance Warning of Ag Pesticide Spray
WHAT: Online zoom news conference: “Stop Pesticide Secrecy! Notification Now!” 
WHY: Farmworker communities across California are demanding that their County Agricultural Commissioners web-post information about what, when, and where hazardous pesticides will be applied. They want to be able to take safety precautions against exposure to drifting pesticides. Currently, the Agricultural Commissioners will only reveal pesticide information after they’ve already been applied. 
WHEN:      Thursday, May 27th, 12:00 PM Noon

WHO:        Sponsored by Californians for Pesticide Reform.

  • Live look-ins at simultaneous in-person news conferences in farmworker communities of Bakersfield, Modesto, Salinas, and Tulare
