Student Action with Farmworkers Celebrates 20 Years of Growing Farmworker Activists!

1992-2012 | For twenty years SAF has worked to bring together students, community members, and farmworkers in the Southeast to work for justice in the agricultural system.
SAF is celebrating our 20-year history by honoring our achievements while recognizing that as the current political climate reveals, there is much work left to be done. SAF is focused on our vision, where one day all farmworkers will have dignity in their work and livelihood.
