The economic and health devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are widespread, but we’ve disproportionately heaped the burden of holding up the economy and preserving our way of life on certain groups of people—many of which we never see. In the second episode of this two-part series, we highlight the Farm Labor Practices Group, a diverse coalition of agriculture stakeholders committed to ensure a safe and productive farm experience for farmers and laborers. The group has also been a key supporter of COVID-19 relief efforts in the Southeast U.S., helping to provide personal protective equipment and educate workers on the best practices and health care options available to them as they navigate a global pandemic.
