Sowing the Seeds of Change: A Snapshot of Child Labor in America

Jan 01, 2012
  • Description

The Children in the Fields Campaign is working to help farmworker children share their stories and become leaders in their own communities through farmworker youth photo exhibits, student-led conferences, and educational materials, such as this one. In addition, AFOP hosts an annual Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Children Essay & Art Contest. The photographs, videos, and testimonials collected from farmworker children illuminate the struggles and hopes of the nation's most marginalized population and demonstrate the potential that exists for young people who are given the opportunity to work hard in the classrooms instead of working hard in the fields.
