Farmworkers do backbreaking work, often in dangerous conditions for little pay. We believe that everyone, no matter their occupation, should be safe on the job, so we’ve been working to help improve living and working conditions for our state’s thousands of farmworkers for decades. That’s why we support the Harvest of Dignity campaign by the Farmworker Advocacy Network.

What does this work look like for us? Raising public awareness, publishing fact sheets and Bible-based curriculum, connecting seminary students with rural ministries and health clinics, sponsoring interns to document conditions, participating in dynamic statewide coalitions, even producing a public service announcement about child labor in the fields.

But we can’t do this work without you. Too little has changed in the fields over the last 50 years. Visit the Farmworker Institute website below and sign up for our “Faith + Immigration” newsletter to learn more and to get involved.
