Fellowship Addresses Challenges Faced by Agricultural Workers

One of the projects I worked on during my Summer Fellowship at Friends of Farmworkers was an initiative to address labor trafficking of agricultural workers in northwest Pennsylvania. The locals tell us that the area is the second-largest producer of grapes in the nation, and grape farms, landscapers, and other industries employ many immigrant workers in the area. A lot of our outreach involved networking with immigrant workers and the service providers that serve them, demonstrating FOF’s model of holistic representation.  I am grateful that my work at Friends of Farmworkers taught me about challenges that workers in my community face and has inspired me to work to address those issues.
