For more than 50 years, AFSC's Farm Labor Program (Proyecto Campesino) has supported farmworkers throughout the San Joaquin Valley in their quest for humane working conditions, safer housing, affordable health care, and recognition due them as working members of society. In the wake of recent anti-immigrant scapegoating, Proyecto Campesino has defended the rights of immigrant workers and their families, countering negative public perceptions with accurate information.
