There are an increasing number of Hispanic farmworkers that hail from rural areas in Mexico and Guatemala that speak indigenous languages like Mexteco, among others. Our Pesticides Office and several farmworker groups are reaching out to them in their languages. Much more needs to be done to help them protect their health, their families and the environment.

It will be a huge help to get everyone informed on environmental issues and understanding what is going on. Going beyond just translating brochures will help you to win friends and allies in the hispanic communities across the country. And no where is this more important than in hispanic rural areas in the country. We have had a situation out near San Bernardino where Mexican immigrants were badly treated in a trailer park; these persons where Mexican Indians and many did not know Spanish let alone English. What you are doing will give the community important information and that will give them some power over what happens to them and where they live. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

I’m totally into the green thing. But you really need to get more out to us middle, lower class people, we are the ones that can make a real change. Good luck and I hope you make a HUGE inpact. Thanks.
