Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
"We have no choice but to take action," says Rosalinda Guillen, a widely recognized rural justice leader and champion of farmworker rights. In this interview with Guillen, she discusses organizing, participatory democracy, and what she and her colleagues call ecofeminism: "empowering the feminine in our society, people and mother nature herself."

Guillen also talks about some of her proudest victories as an activist and organizer, and what shed like to accomplish next.

Rosalinda Guillen is born in Texas, and spent her first decade in Coahuila, Mexico before emigrating with her family to LaConner, Washington in 1960. At the age of ten she went to work as a farmworker in the fields in Skagit County. Today, Rosalinda is the executive director of Community to Community, an organization that works to, broadly, redefine power in order to end settler colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy. Within the labor movement Rosalinda has worked with Caesar Chavezs United Farm Workers of America and has represented farmworkers in ongoing dialogues of immigration issues, labor rights, trade agreements, and strengthening the food sovereignty movement.

This interview was originally aired on Rootstock Radio, a weekly radio show from Wisconsins Organic Valley, the nation s largest organic farmer-owned cooperative. The show focuses on food, farming, and family. It educates about the good food movement" the challenges faced, change makers and grass root initiatives, and what each of us can do to work toward a healthy, sustainable, and just food system.
