Please join us for a special film presentation of "The Fight for Water: A Farm Worker Struggle," by San Joaquin Valley filmmaker Juan Carlos Oseguera.

Set during the water crisis of 2009 and 2010, "The Fight for Water: A Farm Worker Struggle" documents the human impact an environmental decision had upon a farming community in the heart of California's Central Valley when their water supply was shut off. A panel discussion with the filmmaker and others on water in Merced and community impacts of these events follows the screening.

The screening is sponsored by the Merced Irrigation District, the Merced County Farm Bureau, the Farm Water Coalition, Yosemite Farm Credit and UC Merced.
