Our Mission and Core Values


Our Mission

National Farm Worker Ministry (NFWM) is a faith-based organization committed to social, economic, and racial justice for farm workers. NFWM educates, equips, and mobilizes member organizations and other faith communities, groups, and individuals to support farm worker-led efforts to improve their living and working conditions.  


Our Core Values

NFWM embodies our mission through our shared core values:


We recognize the inherent dignity of all persons and will treat others as they wish to be treated.  


We commit to work in solidarity with partners to end exploitative social and economic systems that target farm workers and communities of color.  

Racial Justice* 

We commit to intentional, antiracist work to dismantle white privilege and white supremacy, opening ourselves to personal and organizational transformation as we resist all unjust relationships and systems of oppression.  


We are encouraged by faith and conscience to continue our work of solidarity with farm workers. ¡Hasta la victoria!  


We are careful and creative with the Ministry’s time, talents and treasure.  

¡Sí Se Puede! (Yes, We Can!) 

We embody a personal and organizational spirit that promotes confidence, courage, risk-taking, and  positivity.
