“I am nobody; and my story is the same as a million others.” — Elva Hart, “Barefoot Heart”

It is unsettling that the stories of those who have shifted from being a laborer to a farm or food business owner go largely untold,  often leaving an incomplete public perception of immigrant families. Please join us on June 2nd at First United Methodist Church in launching Huerto de la Familia’s three-part short film series, “Harvest of Pride.” Combining the personal stories of Latinos in the Eugene, Oregon community and interviews with food justice leaders throughout the United States, these documentary film essays contemplate our nation’s preparedness in facing a challenging but potentially rich future for its food system(s) and growing immigrant population.

Supporters include: The Catholic Campaign for Human Development, UO Center for Latino/a & Latin American Studies, Erika Leaf Fund of Oregon Community Foundation, Harry Chapin Foundation, The Lane Cultural Coalition, Fulbright Eco Grant, and the Wayne Morse Center.

First United Methodist Church neither endorses or sponsors this activity. Parking is available in the church lot as well as on the street between 13th and 14th Avenues.
