What's Work Got To Do With Farmworkers' Experiences During COVID?
Speaker: Reyna Lopez, PCUN Executive Director (she/they)
Narrator: Helen Schuckers, MPH

Reyna Lopez's talk, "Essentially Forgotten?" was given at our Fall 2020 Spring Symposium where she addressed the impacts of COVID19 on the Latinx farm working community.

Reyna Lopez is a leader and proud daughter of immigrants from Mexico, who came to Oregon in the late 80’s following the migration of farm work in the Marion County area. She is currently the Executive Director of PCUN, which was started by farmworkers and is now Oregon’s longest standing Latinx led organization. Reyna grew up in Salem, Oregon and graduated from Willamette University with her BA in Political Science and Sociology. For over a decade, she has been a fierce leader and advocate for the Latinx community in Oregon, receiving the Immigrant Award from the American Association of Immigration Lawyers of Oregon, and Willamette University’s Young Alumni of the Year Award for her work in social justice causes, campaigns, movement and coalition building.

Reyna's talk was given during our 2020 Fall Symposium last November, where speakers addressed work as a social determinant of health. Within the backdrop of the COVID-19 global pandemic and a public health crisis of systemic racism, this symposium will focus on the varying ways that social determinants of health have both affected, and are affected by work.
