Most farmworkers are married and/or have children; yet almost six out of ten farmworkers live apart from their immediate family members.
Student Organizing School
Organizing Our Campuses for Justice
Through the Student Organizing School, SAF trains, mentors, and supports a small group of college students in NC to be leaders in the farmworker movement. Through an orientation, retreats, and farm labor camp visits, student organizers learn about the history of the farm labor movement, current farm labor campaigns, and popular education and organizing. Through campus organizing, the students support current policy and organizing campaigns to improve farm labor conditions.
