Jennifer Salazar Sanchez, 2022 Program Assistant
Student Action with Farmworkers
As a program assistant for this year's Into the Fields cohort, I learned so much about how critical it is for organizations to work among themselves to make change. Farmworkers include men, women, and children who often face issues that range from health, legal, educational, and environmental challenges. Yet, this summer exposed to me the importance of each of the sponsor organizations that SAF works with and the critical role each plays within the farmworker movement. SAF opened my eyes and exposed me to many areas that I thought I would never get the chance to see – from grant writing to supervising interns to how to think creatively about creating workshops and materials for interns and farmworkers.
