Farmworkers, low-income people, and immigrants know best their own reality and they must take the lead in creating the solutions. These efforts will fall short without the support of others.
No one isolated group of people can achieve the changes they seek without the involvement of others. That involvement takes the form of active engagement in the issues which farmworker communities care about, as well as help in securing the financial resources necessary to continue this important work.
Most of our organizational support comes from people like you. Your support is extremely important for our on-going success! We want to maintain contact with you so we can keep you up to date on our successes, our progress, and our struggles.
“We have good partnerships with Rollins College, University of Central Florida, Seminole State College, Stetson University, FAMU Law School, Florida State University, and more to offer service learning and volunteer opportunities, including work days in the Community Gardens and Lake Apopka Toxic Tours for students and classes. The students are very helpful, and we learn from each other. We learn from and through our diversity and through intergenerational dialogues and interactions. These experiences enrich everyone and expand our understanding and appreciation of each other. We always welcome the opportunity to work with volunteers..” ~Yesica Ramirez, Community Organizer
