About The Event

Alianza Nacional de Campesinas will once again join the global movement, One Billion Rising, to advocate for the end of gender-based violence. Farmworker women not only experience gender based violence at a disproportionate rate when compared with other groups, but they also have to endure exploitation by employers and grueling work conditions. Often cases go unreported because of fear related to immigration status and other related threats. On February 14th farmworker women from across the country, along with their families and communities, will host gatherings, virtually and in person, to uplift the voices of survivors, share important information, and rise against gender-based violence. We will be sharing the different gatherings taking place by our member organizations on through our social media platforms @CampesinasUnite.
