According to a 2005 survey, 53% of farmworkers are undocumented (without legal authorization), 25% are United States citizens, and 21% are legal permanent residents.
This November, Student Action with Farmworkers launches our annual grassroots fundraising campaign
During the last fiscal year, 20 staff, alumni, board, and friends raised more than $40k from 667 individuals all over the country. Our goal for the 2014-2015 fiscal year is to raise $42k through online fundraising campaigns.
SAF uses money raised from individuals to:
• conduct outreach to students and farmworkers,
• provide training, stipends, and scholarships for interns, fellows, and youth,
• share documentaries and presentations with the general public, and
• provide a living wage and full benefits to our staff
