Laura Dern brought Monica Ramirez (not pictured), Deputy Director for the Labor Counsel for Latin American Advancement. Dern said Ramirez's letter, sent on behalf of 700,000 female farmworkers post-Harvey Weinstein scandal, was "extraordinary," and that she had to bring her along. “It’s time for us to make a difference, and everyone can make a difference and reach out and learn more at TimesUpNow.com," added Dern.
