We work energetically to change unjust conditions, systems and relationships and open ourselves to transformation as well.

¡Si Se Puede! (Yes, We Can!)
We embody a personal and organizational spirit that promotes confidence, courage, risk taking and a positive attitude.

We are encouraged by the Spirit, as expressed in our respective faith traditions, in carrying out our continuing work in solidarity with farm workers. ¡Hasta La Victoria!

Resourcefulness
We are careful and creative stewards in the planning and directing of the Ministry’s time, talents and treasure.
