Farmworkers’ average annual income is $11,000, making them the lowest paid workforce in the nation.
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
