Mission Statement

The mission of the Farmworker Association of Florida is to build power among farmworker and low-income communities to respond to and gain control over the social, political, economic, workplace, health, and environmental justice issues impacting their lives.

Description

n keeping true to the mission and guiding vision, FWAF's core strategy is to help farmworkers realize their power to be effective agents of social and personal change by: validating and strengthening the experience and understanding of farmworkers;building farmworkers' capacity to participate in decision-making processes that affect their lives; raising consciousness about and advocating for farmworkers' rights and justice.

Toward this goal, FWAF's programs and activities build leadership and activist skills among low-income communities of color who are disproportionately affected by pesticide exposure/health problems, environmental contamination, racism, exploitation, and political under-representation.
