Damian Trujillo Dinner
Growing up in Greenfield, Damian worked in the fields starting when he was in seventh grade. Both his father and mother struggled to support their family of ten while laboring in the fields. Damian dreamed of doing anything other than working in the fields like his parents and older siblings.
Featuring the recently released documentary on Damian's journey to success 'From the Fields: An American Journey,' deconstructs common perceptions of Latinos by re-framing the American success story. This film goes beyond the hateful rhetoric surrounding the immigration debate and into a deeper exploration of what it means to work, to support family and contribute to our American society.
