SAF has been a huge part of my college experience. For me, it was really important to balance out my academic experiences with the understanding that different types of learning occur outside a classroom setting. I now feel deeply committed to the farmworker movement. We should all care about this movement, because we all eat food, and we can't forget about the human aspect of food when it comes to creating a just agricultural system.
