In 1983, Central Florida farmworkers united to create the Farmworker Association of Florida after freezes to orange groves left them out of work. The group now has five offices in the state and more than 10,000 members. Jeannie Economos is the Coordinator of the Pesticide Safety and Environmental Health Project at the Farmworker Association of Florida. In an interview, she discusses the impact of racism, immigration, climate change and COVID-19 on the farmworker community.
