The Marc Steiner Show

April 2, 2012 – Segment 3

Today, we sit down with Lucas Benitez, who came to the United States as a teenager to help support his family by doing farmwork. As a response to the unfair treatment of farm laborers, he co-founded the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in Florida. 

You can read about Lucas in the Yes! Magazine Breakthrough 15.  He was chosen by Yes! as one of 15 heroes in their issue marking their 15th year in print.
