NFWM’s 50 for 50: Celebrating history

Cesar Chavez, Chris Hartmire

50 for 50 page

Featuring stories of some of the 50 people, events, and even “things” that tell the history of NFWM, our new online exhibit celebrates the 50th anniversary of the National Farm Worker Ministry. It is a collection of some of the stories and memories of the people of faith who have committed their lives to the movement and to the Ministry. This is history told through the eyes of those who experienced it. 

The Ministry was founded 50 years ago in 1971, but that is not truly when it began. That year represents the moment in time when people of faith who were already supporting the farm worker movement came together to establish a national organization to educate and inspire the faith community to join the cause. These are their stories. Come visit and share your own story, too.
