What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Farm Worker Unions & Associations

NFWM informs and mobilizes religious leaders, institutions and people of faith to be a public voice for farm worker justice, whether through endorsements, workshops, leafleting and demonstrations, boycotts, lobbying or press conferences. The goal of all this activity is to create public awareness and support so that growers, corporations, regulators and legislators are compelled to act justly toward farm workers. NFWM carries out its work through our 35 member organizations, four national staff, and five local staff (in Oregon, California, North Carolina, Central and South Florida) who are placed in areas where farm workers are organizing. We develop educational materials and liturgical resources related to farm workers, making those available through workshops, our web site, at conferences and through our member groups. We network with related organizations to increase our capacity.
