Testimonial

As the Solidaridad policy intern for SAF, I’ve collaborated with other organizers to advocate for in-state tuition for undocumented students, a national heat stress standard, a pathway to citizenship, and more! I’ve learned about the unfair working and living conditions that farmworkers experience on a daily basis, and I’m committed to continuing to fight for change.
