Farmworkers need our help to amplify their voices. Farmworker Justice fights every day in legislatures, agencies and the courts for stronger occupational safety protections, including against COVID-19, heat stress, pesticide exposure and dangerous machinery. In addition, we help educate farmworkers how to protect themselves and to know their rights by working with our partner organizations.
