Film- Rape in the Fields

The Sacramento Press Club presents the screening of the award winning documentary Rape in the Fields, Wednesday, January 15th 2014 at 6:15pm at The Crest Theatre (1013 K Street, Sacramento). “For the women who pick and process our food, sexual assault, and even rape, is sometimes part of the job. Is it the hidden price that many women farmworkers, especially those not authorized to work in the U.S., are paying to stay employed and provide for their families. Rape in the Fields tells the story of how female farm workers fall prey to their field bosses and co-workers – and dare not denounce their attackers. The film is a unique collaboration between FRONTLINE, Univision, The Center for Investigative Reporting, and The Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley’s School of Journalism.” 5:30pm – Cocktail Reception at The Crest Theatre, 6:00pm Opening Remarks by Dolores Huerta, 6:15pm Screening of Rape in the Fields, 7:15pm Q&A with filmmakers and reporters.
