We learned that the workers are the ones that show the way. The workers are the ones that open the way to follow. We have learned through the years to listen to them, to respect them for that, and to move into the different campaigns and plans they have.Olgha Sierra Sandman
In 53 years of organizing, the cornerstone of having a moral base has been more important or as important as anything else to allow the farm worker movement to survive to this day. -Baldemar VelasquezMember Organizations
National Farm Worker Ministry is a faith-based organization which supports farm workers as they organize for justice and empowerment.
Grounded in faith, NFWM works side by side with farm workers and their organizing groups throughout the country, to organize vigils, picket, coordinate boycotts and educate constituents. NFWM brings together national denominations, religious orders and congregations, regional groups and concerned individuals to act with the farm workers to achieve fundamental change in their living and working conditions.
