2019 NFAW Report

Check out our 2019 National Farmworker Awareness Week video report to see the actions and impact of this year's campaign.

Thanks to everyone for making National Farmworker Awareness Week a success this year! 
A very special thank you to all our NFAW partners for all your work in lifting up the contributions of farmworkers in your communities across the country. Check our our 47 NFAW partners here. From Florida to New Mexico, California, Idaho, New York, Arizona, and beyond, our partners hosted truly powerful and creative events like trivia on social media, an astronaut/former farmworker on campus, panel discussions, film screenings, bandana decorating, pickets, and so much more!

“This event was incredibly powerful and eye-opening for everyone involved. We had a wonderful turnout and the panelists seemed to feel like we were in a space that was safe and supportive.”
– Sophie, University of Rochester

Here at SAF, we had 12 local events coordinated by SAF staff, alumni, Solidaridad interns and Levante students, including an exhibit opening and readers' theater, film screenings, and panel discussions from farmworker advocates.

Our daily messages and NFAW banner and poster images were spread far and wide on social media. And 7 NFAW partners took over our Instagram page for Pasa la Papa each day of the week to share about their organizations and what they're doing to raise awareness and celebrate farmworkers.

Thank you also to the individuals who created our beautiful NFAW materials this year: to Bonnie Campbell for the poster design commemorating the 20th anniversary of NFAW, to Edith Valle for the new NFAW banner, to Erin Hazlett-Norman for combing our archive for images and quotes for the daily messages, to Maggie Heraty for the t-shirt and button design, and to SAF Solidaridad interns Brittany Broome and Elizabeth Cieza for helping with all the behind-the-scenes NFAW work.

We're thankful for everyone's contributions to making this year a success in spreading awareness of the important contributions farmworkers make. In solidaridad, until next year!
