For SPOHP's Summer 2013 Oral History Seminar class. Miguel Zelaya is a veteran farmworker and pesticide safety instructor for the Farmworkers Association in Apopka, Florida. In this mostly Spanish-language podcast, Zelaya discusses how his personal experiences with toxic exposure in the workplace has inspired his career in workplace education, the direct links between income and education and access to healthcare and fair working conditions, and how the struggle for farmworkers’ rights is deeply related to the larger immigrants’ rights movement in the United States.
