- Pesticide Safety:
*Worker Protection Standard (WPS)
*Limiting [Pesticide] Exposure Around Families (LEAF)
*Pesticide Exposure and Pregnancy (PEP)
*Jose Learns About Pesticides (for children)

- Heat Stress Prevention
- Tractor Safety
-Chemical Hazards

Since 1997, AFOP’s Children in the Fields Campaign has been dedicated to ensuring that farmworker children are protected and given an opportunity to succeed in life. By educating the public, advocating for educational programs for farmworker children, and supporting fair living wages for all farmworkers, the Children in the Fields Campaign strives to get farmworker children out of the fields and back into schools.

The Children in the Fields Campaign has partnered with the Child Labor Coalition, the National Consumers League, and other concerned parties to protect farmworker children. Together, they work to publicize the plight of this hidden population and advocate for federal policies that would strengthen the child labor safeguards in agriculture so that they are just as protective as those in other industries.

THE NATIONAL FARMWORKER JOBS PROGRAM
The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) is the most successful job training program operated by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). It is a fiscally responsible program aimed at educating and training farmworkers into jobs that allow them to earn an income to sustain themselves and their families.

AFOP member agencies operate the program through competitive grants awarded by the United States Department of Labor. Members serve agricultural workers in 49 states and Puerto Rico—only Alaska has no program.

Most members also serve farmworkers in other ways, including Head Start, health, pesticide safety, education, ESOL, housing, and economic development.

Many operate emergency food and clothing banks in their efforts to assist very low income workers and their families.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The farmworker population is a group of people who, by nature of their work, are isolated, underserved, and vulnerable to daily threats of socio-economic, legal, environmental, and personal health disasters.

The thread that binds the Association is the concept that training and education can provide the launching pad to a better and more stable life for the workers who plant, tend, and harvest the crops that Americans consume at their tables. Specifically, we seek:

*A fair living wage for farmworkers
*A just and equitable immigration policy
*Benefits for the work that is done to prepare and produce the crops and livestock that become food for American tables
*Comprehensive and equal protections
*Protection against disasters and dislocations
*Enhanced and expanded federal programs
*Protection of workers' rights
*Increased enforcement

Through advocacy, education and resource we hope to help improve the life of all farmworkers and their families.

We will accomplish our goals through advocacy and through our programs.

AFOP will continue working to protect our Nations farmworkers.
