On Thursday night, Latino Rebels Radio host Julio Ricardo Varela had a Facebook Live conversation with Mónica Ramírez, a former LR Radio co-host and the founder of Justice for Migrant Women. Julio and Mónica talked about how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting the country’s farmworkers—essential workers still facing serious challenges. This podcast episode highlights part of that conversation.
