HALF MOON BAY, Calif. (KRON) — Bay Area Latino organizations are set to have a roundtable discussion on the working conditions that farmworkers in Half Moon Bay are dealing with.
Farmworkers and other coastal community members will be speaking with local and state officials on their daily challenges including housing, mental health and overall living conditions.
ALAS, the nonprofit that is hosting the event, says they plan to discuss this past year’s mass shooting. This discussion comes months after the deadly Half Moon Bay mass shooting when an alleged disgruntled worker opened fire and killed seven of his colleagues while on the job.
ALAS hopes to bring awareness to the conditions farmworkers in these coastal communities face.
