(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland) is pressing his fellow lawmakers to approve his legislation to require public school instruction on the contributions of Filipino Americans to the farm labor movement in California. "The goal of Assembly Bill 123 is to supplement California's rich farm worker history with the contributions of the Filipino American community. The Filipino American population composes the largest Asian population in California and continues to grow; yet the story of Filipinos and their crucial efforts to the farm labor movement is an untold part of California history," explained Assemblymember Bonta. Learn more about the role of Filipino American farm workers and Assemblymember Bonta's legislation in this Assembly Web Report.
