Latinos: protect farmworkers from toxic pesticides. Deadline: August 18.

Tell the EPA to strengthen their safeguards from toxic pesticide exposure for farmworkers. Every year tens of thousands of farmworkers are poisoned on the job from pesticide exposure, and the majority of farmworkers are Latino. After 20 years, the Environmental Protection Agency has finally proposed revisions to the Worker Protection Standards that will better protect farmworkers and their families from these toxic chemicals. But now we need to make sure these standards are as strong as possible – before the comment period deadline on August 18. Urge the EPA to make these critical safeguards stronger and to fully enforce them so that all farmworkers are protected from poisonous pesticides.
