#CAMPESINASRISING ON 25 MARCH
LED BY ALIANZA NACIONAL DE CAMPESINAS,
THE FIRST NATIONAL FARMWORKER WOMEN ORGANIZATION THAT FIGHTS FOR CAMPESINA’S HUMAN RIGHTS
Campesinas Rising will raise awareness about and work towards eliminating violence faced by campesina women and girls, in the United States and globally. The idea of Campesinas Rising first emerged from Alianza Nacional de Campesinas and Eve Ensler’s collaboration to eradicate violence against campesinas and girls, as part of the global One Billion Rising Global Movement. Campesinas Rising will raise awareness about and work towards eliminating violence faced by campesina women and girls, in the United States and globally.
Campesinas Rising takes place on the first day of Farmworker Awareness Week 2019, and during Women’s History Month. Throughout the day, advocacy events and actions will be carried out by farmworker women-serving and member organizations throughout the world. From social media storms to lobbying for protections for women and girls, gender-justice and farmworkers’ rights organizations will unite with a common goal to advance a safer working space for farmworker women and girls. Find an action near you and join us in our fight to end gender-based violence against women and girls.
