Grantees Student / Farmworker Alliance

Immokalee, FL
·
Student/Farmworker Alliance (SFA) is a national network of students and youth organizing with farmworkers to eliminate sweatshop conditions and modern-day slavery in the fields. We work in alliance with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), a Florida-based, membership-led organization of mostly Latino, Haitian, and Mayan Indian low-wage workers. We understand our work—which formally began in 2000— as part of larger movements for economic and social justice. Through our organizing, we strive to create community and recognize the transformative power of movement building.
