YES Magazine highlights Climate Justice In Sonoma County

April 24, 2023YES Magazine published an excellent article by our friend and photojournalist Brooke Anderson that features OAEC’s collaboration with North Bay Jobs with Justice (NBJwJ) and workers from their Farmworker Justice Campaign who participated in our vegetation management and workforce development pilot!

The article covers the workers’ recent campaign victories in Sonoma County and their ongoing struggle to organize and reclaim their labor towards ecologically regenerative, living-wage jobs in land restoration and fire mitigation. 

“The very farmworkers who have worked for industries whose exploitation of both land and labor has fueled the fires are now restoring the land and mitigating future fire risk while building the model for an immigrant and Indigenous worker-led climate resilience.”
