About Us

OUR MISSION


Alianza Nacional de Campesinas’ mission is to unify the struggle to promote farm worker women’s leadership in a national movement to a broader visibility and advocate for changes that ensure their human rights.

HISTORY

Alianza Nacional de Campesinas was launched in 2011 after many years of conversations with farmworker women around the United States and in Mexico. For years, farmworker women and advocates organized and engaged in activities in their states and communities that were aimed at securing help and resources for farmworker women on many issues, including domestic violence, sexual harassment, basic rights, healthcare, education, housing, immigration and other issues. Over the years it became clear that it was necessary to unite these efforts at a national level in order to have the greatest impact possible.

THE ORIGINS

Farmworker women’s unique needs have largely gone unmet. Alianza de Campesinas members decided that it was time to ensure that their concerns and priorities would be heard by politicians, employers and community members. Therefore, they decided to form a national organization comprised of farmworker women and women from farmworker families to ensure that they would have a place at the decision-making tables and that they would lead the charge to set the agenda for the issues that are most important to them and their communities.

OUR PRIMARY CONCERNS

Alianza de Campesinas is committed to securing social, environmental, and economic justice; violence prevention; equality, and healthier workplaces, homes and communities for farmworker women and their families. Alianza de Campesinas members are particularly concerned with ending workplace exploitation against farmworker women and all farmworkers, including sexual harassment.

We stand in solidarity to elevate & support farmworker women across the United States.


Alianza Nacional de Campesinas (“Alianza de Campesinas”) is the first national farmworker women’s organization in the U. S. created by current and former farmworker women, along with women who hail from farmworker families.
