California's Oppressive 50-Mile Rule

Dr. Ann Lopéz is featured in this this video, created by Human Agenda (Lana Woodward), about the California Department of Housing and Development's 50-Mile Rule.   The 50-Mile Rule is one of the many arbitrary and oppressive regulations affecting our state's agricultural workers and their children's education. This regulation is disrupting families and disrupting their children's education and contributing to academic failure and persistent cycle of poverty.

Center for Farmworker Families, Food Empowerment Project, and Human Agenda work together to raise awareness and to introduce a proposed law in the California legislature to remove the 50-Mile Rule.
