This year's National Farmworker Awareness Week was an incredible collaboration with 41 partners all across the country. Thank you to our partners for investing your time and energy into social media campaigns, t-shirt drives, film screenings, panel discussions, and more.
You proved that advocacy cannot be stopped even in the midst of a global crisis. We are confident that your efforts have helped advance the fight for agricultural justice.
A special thanks to Bonnie Campbell for designing this year's poster and to SAF Solidaridad intern America Juarez-Maldonado whose face appears in the poster; to Justice for Migrant Women for producing our virtual kick-off event; to all the partners who made videos for that event/ and to Mary Johnson Rockers for sharing her beautiful song to close out the week.
And a special thanks to SAF Solidaridad interns and Levante youth for the virtual presentation they held to educate people about the farmworker justice movement.
We look forward to many more successful weeks of action and awareness.
– Victoria Nwankudu, SAF Grassroots Organizer
