Student Listening Session with Farmworker Women

Presentation | April 13 | 3-4 p.m. | Morgan Hall, Morgan Hall Lounge

 Berkeley Food Institute

Join members of Líderes Campesinas for an opportunity to learn directly about the lives and activism of California farm-working women (campesinas). The mission of Líderes Campesinas is to develop leadership among campesinas so that they serve as agents of political, social, and economic change in the farmworker community. This leadership has created an organization by and for campesinas. The approach emphasizes capacity building, democratic decision-making, advocacy, peer training and leadership development as well as a mixture of traditional and innovative education, outreach and mobilizing methods such as house meetings, arts, and theatrical presentations (dramas or teatros) at community venues. Open to college and university students.

Registration required. Register here.
