Alianza Nacional de Campesinas
The unique needs of the 700,000 women farmworkers in the United States have largely gone unmet. In 2011, a group of women banded together to ensure that their concerns and priorities would be heard by politicians, employers, and community members.
Alianza de Camesinas is comprised of farmworker women and women from farmworker families determined to set the agenda for the issues that are most important to them and their communities and have a place at decision-making tables.
In 2017, Alizanza joined forces with the #TimesUp movement against sexual assault with this letter of support and in so doing, raised awareness of the plight of women farmworkers to a national and international audience.
It is committed to:
- Ending workplace exploitation of farmworker women and all farmworkers, including sexual harassment
- Securing social, environmental, and economic justice
- Violence prevention
- Healthier workplaces
