As part of National Farmworker Awareness Week, the UNC Immigration Law Association will be screening the documentary "Harvest of Dignity," followed by a discussion with Raul Gamez, who was involved in the film.

"Harvest of Dignity" highlights the existence of American dream-deprived immigrants, as well as American citizens who are trapped by a system of servitude, mimicking circumstances recognized in even the earliest days of agricultural collectives. In fact, inhumane living conditions in connection to modern farms arguably harken back to slave quarters in the Pre-Civil War Era South.
