Review for Farmworker Association of Florida Inc. (FWAF), Apopka, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For the past 25 years, I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with the Farmworker Association of Florida on a wide range of projects. Throughout this time, the FWAF has steadfastly remained true to its original mission: emplowering farmworkers to be able to take charge of their lieves and change the substandard conditions that have plagued the farm labor market for decades. The FWAF leadership and staff is comprised overwhelmingly of farmworkers, most of whom have developed leadership skills through work with the Association. It is farmworkers who set the agenda for the FWAF and who have fueled its many successes over the years. The FWAF has been the striongest voice in Florida addressing many of the chronic ills that beset farmworkers: pesticide exposure, dilapidated housing, low wages, abusive crew chiefs, sexual harassment, abuse of H-2A guestworkers, immigration and exclusion from labor protection laws (such as overtime coverage under federal law, the National Labor Relations Act and worker's compensation laws in over half the states). While other farmworker advcacy groups have come and gone over the past 30 years, the FWAF alone has been an unwavering voice for farmworkers in Florida.
