We build on the long legacy of women using organizing, outreach, and grassroots mobilization to improve the lives of farmworker communities. Our origins stretch back to 1988 in the Coachella Valley: due to immigration status, lack of formal education, and abusive work conditions, women were susceptible to violence in the fields and in their homes. Using theater and storytelling as educational tools, these women known as “Mujeres Mexicanas” came together to raise awareness about their rights and connected women to resources to disrupt the violence.
