Suguet López

Executive Director


I joined Líderes Campesinas because the organization has helped me recognize my talents and strengths and because every day I am presented with an opportunity to be the change I want to see in my community. I’m passionate about being witness to our Mission in Action every day and with all my colleagues who make up the movement of campesinas in California and at national level.

I joined the team in a very synchronous way after witnessing for years all of the inequities and injustices endured by farmworker communities here and abroad. The powerful role of women in the Agricultural industry and in their household make them essential leaders in their communities and that was and continues to be what inspires me.

I was a farmworker and my family is farm-working. During this time I saw all the injustice, the lack of training, wage theft and discrimination. This pushed me to do something different in my life and after almost 12 years I am still in this fight.

I’m a survivor of domestic violence, human trafficking, and I’m the daughter of farmworkers. When I heard about Líderes Campesinas, what they do for women’s rights, victims of domestic violence, and when I learned the mission, my passion was born to be part of this organization in order to join this fight and obtain more rights and create changes.

Labor Rights Program Coordinator

Coming from a family of agricultural workers, and me being a farmworker, I’ve been witness to all the injustice that women and farmworkers face day to day. Because of this, the act of providing services and resources to the agricultural communities is a gratifying experience.

I joined Líderes Campesinas because I am a daughter of farm working parents and I would’ve liked that my parents had a resource to go to and find more help for farmworkers. What I like about Líderes Campesinas is the constant effort to grow the leadership and personal development of farm-working women, and the dedication of the farm-working members to address the problems affecting the farmworking community and ensure they are heard and protected.
