Registration is still OPEN for this year's NYS Farmworker Conference in Syracuse!

Historically farmworkers have faced many barriers when coming to work in the United States. With the current negative sentiments by many towards immigrants, it is imperative that those that serve this population or have an interest in farmworkers understand the current regulations and likely pressures they will face in the future. 

Did you know that a person's immigration status may be in jeopardy because of certain benefits they have received? The National Immigration Law Center will be explaining all of the "ins and outs" of the new "public charge" rule.  

Why is it crucial that we recognize farmworkers when they present in our health centers? The National Center for Farmworker Health will educate us on how these numbers impact funding.

Did you know that the agricultural farmworker population is changing? We'll hear about the latest trends of farmworkers landing in Upstate New York and how certain industries may now qualify to receive authorized immigrant workers.

Some other topics that will be addressed:

  • Working together to improve healthcare access for farmworkers in NYS
  • Other legal issues impacting farmworkers
  • The importance of including farmworkers in our population census
  • Learn what other organizations are doing to serve farmworkers

Wait!  There's more:

  • The Farmworker Health Conference offers a wonderful platform for networking opportunities!
  • Brochures and farmworker agency information will be available throughout the day.

Logistics:

  • Check-in and networking will begin at 9am. 
  • Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be provided in the morning. 
  • Buffet style lunch (and dessert) will be provided in the afternoon.
  • All attendee door prize drawings will take place throughout the day!
