About Us

CATA (El Comité de Apoyo a los Trabajadores Agrícolas / The Farmworkers’ Support Committee) is governed by and comprised of farmworkers and other low-wage immigrant workers who are actively engaged in the struggle for better working and living conditions. CATA's mission is to empower and educate farmworkers and all immigrant workers through leadership development and capacity building so that they are able to make informed decisions regarding the best course of action for their interests. CATA’s programs are based on the Popular Education Methodology, which actively involve workers in the process of social change – meaning that the analysis and proposed actions come directly from the workers. We undertake projects and campaigns with the goal of achieving meaningful and lasting improvements in workers’ living and working conditions. The organization was founded by migrant farmworkers in southern New Jersey in 1979, and today is composed of members in southern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and the Delmarva Peninsula.
