SPOTLIGHT ON WOODBURN
This week, the Tivnuniks went back to Woodburn, Oregon to round out our discussions about migrant laborers and immigration policy and begin learning about labor conditions and activism in Oregon and beyond. The group met with Jaime Arredondo of PCUN and with Larry Kleinman, whose activism in the Woodburn migrant farmworker community stems directly from his Jewish grandfather’s experience loading trains in the Chicago railyard.
A few weeks ago, the Tivnu crew took its first trip to Woodburn to meet with high school seniors there and to hear about farmworker housing solutions and help out in the community gardens together. We’re looking forward to welcoming those Woodburn High students to the Tivnu bayit for Shabbat dinner next week.
