I love that Líderes Campesinas’s mission is to empower farm-working women and girls. Throughout history, the human rights of many women have been violated just for the simple fact of being called “Woman.” I think that the role of women in society is very important and should be seen as valuable just like that of men regardless of their race or language.

I joined Líderes Campesinas because I saw the need to empower farmworkers since my childhood. My parents were farmers in Mexico and grew many products. I saw how they lived humbly and lacked much education. They emigrated to the United States and many of their rights were violated. I would like to do what I can to inform and advocate for immigrant women and families who made this country their new home so that their human rights are not violated.

I’m part of Líderes Campesinas to serve my community. I joined this organization because I wanted to learn about women’s rights during a domestic violence abuse.

My grandmother. Martha Moreno has been part of Líderes Campesinas since 1994; along with her, my mother Gloria Cruz form part of Líderes Campesinas since 1996. I’ve seen how they’ve been involved in the community and how much they’ve helped. I admire not only them, but also all the members and I want to continue supporting the community just as they’ve been doing. I’m passionate about helping women farmworkers know their rights and to help my community.

Two roads took me to Líderes Campesinas. I was harassed and abused by a ranch manager in the field and at the same time I was experiencing domestic violence. I was an immigrant and I didn’t know anything about the law or the rights I had as a human being. Because of all this, I allowed these abuses, but I was referred to an agency through Líderes Campesinas and since then, I began to see the light. For eight years I’ve been a member volunteer, then I became an alternate in the North Kern chapter and now I am the organizer of the chapter.

I joined Líderes Campesinas because of its values ​​and its mission. Being the daughter of farmworker parents and having also worked in the field, made me approach the organization to be able to support farmworkers and advocate for declining laws that favor the migrant farmworker community.

I came from a background of farm laborers and campesinas, back then there were not any type of organizations like Líderes Campesinas. I really enjoy all the organizational funding, private donations and the hard work of our staff at Líderes Campesinas who wish to support our farm working women.
