LWVs sponsors farm forum

The proposed Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act and its impact on farmers, workers and consumers will be the topic of discussion at a Sept. 22 forum at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Ave.

The event, which will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m., will feature a panel discussion, followed by an open question-and-answer session. Panelists are Lewis Papenfuse, executive director, Worker Justice Center of New York; and Dean Norton, president, New York Farm Bureau. They will address the proposed act, which has been rejected by the state Legislature in various forms in the last 25 years.

The discussion will be moderated by Sandra Frankel, former Brighton town supervisor. It is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Wayne County and the League of Women Voters of the Rochester Metropolitan Area.

Pre-registration is appreciated by calling (585) 262-3730 or visiting www.lwv-rma.org.
