They authors crisscrossed the country, speaking with dairy hands, poultry processing, domestics workers, and others to learn how essential workers are claiming their right to safe jobs for the well-being of their families and their communities.In this webinar, the authors will engage in conversation, moderated by ProPublica reporter Maryam Jameel, about "worker centers" and the connection between these community organizations and social determinants of health.
