2019 Tribune of Worker Justice - Ramon Ramirez

Ramon has worked on behalf of Oregon’s farmworkers for decades, while lifting up not only the struggles of all workers and immigrants, but also those of the LGBTQ and other marginalized communities. From our very beginnings he has been one of NWJP’s closest allies, advisors, collaborators and friends.  Ramon has stepped down as the head of PCUN, and it is time that we honor this working class hero by presenting him with NWJP’s Tribune of Worker Justice Award.

Keynote speaker - Diana Tellefson Torres

Diana is the UFW Foundation’s Executive Director, and will speak about current national efforts to advocate for the “blue card” system to replace the seriously flawed H-2A program for temporary foreign workers and for amendments to the Fair Labor Standards Act to include overtime protections for agricultural workers.
