Oscar Londoño Advocates Protections for Workers Facing Extreme Heat

Oscar Londoño (’17), Co-Executive Director of WeCount!, coauthored an opinion for the Miami Herald discussing his organization’s ¡Que Calor! campaign on behalf of all outdoor workers facing extreme heat in Miami-Dade County, calling for water, shade and rest protections at work (“This Heat Is Deadly. Miami-Dade Agricultural Workers Deserve Water, Shade, Rest,” July 17). “Our message to the 13 Miami-Dade commissioners, County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and all the companies that rely on our labor is: How many more of us must die before you take action? How much are our lives worth? We are human beings and deserve basic protections at work. WeCount! and ¡Que Calor! have the solution. It is time for us to be heard.”
