Student Action with Farmworkers is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to bring students and farmworkers together to learn about each other’s lives, share resources and skills, improve conditions for farmworkers, and build diverse coalitions working for social change.
We envision a world where students and community members actively work together to promote justice in the agricultural system and health and well-being for all farmworkers and their families.
We envision communities where there is greater interaction, communication, and understanding among people of different backgrounds.
We envision a world in which farmworkers are empowered to take leadership in the farmworker justice movement and their local communities.
We envision a world where consumers will be more aware of where their food comes from, who grows it, harvests it, and packages it, and the conditions of its production.
Migrant children will be able to attain their educational and career goals, and farmworker families will be free to practice their cultural and spiritual traditions.
One day, all farmworkers will have dignity in their work and livelihood. Farmworkers will receive a living wage, labor free from environmental and chemical hazards, live in safe and affordable housing, and be free to negotiate with their employer.
People United Will Never Be Defeated!
