FAW directs attention to the unjust conditions seasonal migrant farmworkers face and inspiring dialogues of change.
This year’s theme Essential and Resilient will be a virtual event and social media campaign which aligns perfectly with the current global health pandemic. The event which runs March 28-31.
FAW days are themed, Dia del Estudiante Campesino, Dia de la Mujer Campesina, Dia del Movimiento, and the final day will celebrate Cesar Chavez’ birthday by honoring his life, legacy and current struggles.
