Farmworker Justice 40th Anniversary Booklet: Empowering Farmworkers to Advance Justice

Aug 02, 2021
  • Description

This booklet provides a 40-year retrospective on Farmworker Justice's work to advance justice for farmworkers. The mission of Farmworker Justice is to empower farmworkers and their organization to improve wages and working conditions, improve occupational safety and health, improve immigration status, and improve access to the justice system. These four broad goals have shaped the agenda of Farmworker Justice since the beginning. Our founders decided that a multi-faceted approach would work best in pursuing these goals. Their agenda included a strategic mix of administrative and legislative advocacy, training and technical assistance, coalition-building, public education, litigation, and support for union organizing.
