Sexual Harassment in Agriculture: A Workplace Prevention Training.

A 20 minute fully bilingual training video (one version in English, one version in Spanish) that is focused specifically on the prevention of sexual harassment in the agricultural workplace. Embedded in a larger curriculum this training program is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be developed in collaboration with farmworkers, supervisors/managers, growers/owners, farmworker activists and advocates, film makers and faculty at the University of Washington.  Sexual harassment continues to be an entrenched problem for the Agriculture Industry despite the passage of the Civil Rights Act more than 50 years ago prohibiting an employer from discriminating against employees on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin and religion. Since then, the Agricultural Industry has paid out millions of dollars in settlement fees and countless workers have been victimized. Sexual Harassment in Agriculture: A Workplace Prevention Training offers growers, owners and their workers a solution to this problem that clearly violates the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  For more information about this project, visit: -
