For a farmworker woman, sexual violence is typically suffered in silence. She may not know her legal rights. Employers and supervisors frequently use these fears to exert power and control over farmworker women. These are their stories


We truly appreciate your desire to help us provide

educational workshops to farmworkers
and other low-income Californians.
