Farmworker Awareness Week: Home


Semana Nacional De Los Campesinos / National Farmworker Awareness Week takes place each March to celebrate the people who plant and harvest our food. 2.5 to 3 million people in the United States, including children, are farmworkers. Farmworkers face dangerous conditions in their workplaces including exposure to pesticides, heat illnesses, and subpar field sanitation standards. We honor their essential contributions and recognize their historical and continued fight for fair treatment and safe working conditions. 

Recognize and lift up farmworkers with us by exploring our recommended resources or by attending an event in our local community.
