2017 marked a special moment in Napa Valley, Wine Country. While media outlets and news reporters rushed to cover the burning properties, vineyards and wineries of the wealthy the undocumented worked tirelessly to save the fruits of their labor. As the night fell, surrounded by fiery mountains, the tractors slowly creeped out turning their lights on illuminating the way for laborers to pick the grapes. With pollution levels comparable to high pollution days in China hundreds of agricultural workers were forced to continue their labor ignoring the ash rain and suffering health consequences that would taunt them in the years to come. 2018, 2019 and 2020 have been no different.
