Agricultural Guestworkers in Ohio: What We Know and Where We’re Going
A research presentation and panel discussion on H-2A farmworkers in Ohio.

Please join the Department of Extension at The Ohio State University and the Ohio Commission on Hispanic and Latino Affairs (OCHLA) to learn more about agricultural guestworkers in our state. Each year, OCHLA publishes Latino Community Reports designed to educate and facilitate discussion on particular challenges and opportunities facing Hispanic Ohioans. This season’s publication focuses on the H-2A guestworker population in Ohio. Anisa Kline, PhD candidate in the Dept of Geography at OSU and author of the report, will present original research results from her survey of 285 H-2A workers statewide, and stakeholders from across sectors will respond to her findings. Public Q&A and reception with light refreshments will follow.

Panelists: Silvia Hernandez (Starting Point Outreach Center), Dr. José Salinas (Ohio Migrant Education Center), Phil Riehm (Riehm’s Produce), and Dr. Margaret Jodlowski (Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Developmental Economics, OSU). Moderated by OCHLA’s Executive Director, Lilleana Cavanaugh.
