Stacy Bautista Director Eastern Farm Workers Association will give an overview of their work. Since 1974, Eastern Farm Workers Association (EFWA) has been organizing farm workers and other low-paid workers and uniting students, local businesses, professionals and other workers behind them. EFWA visits farm labor camps throughout Central new York to organize a membership of farm workers and provide a benefit program, including preventive medical care, food and clothing. EFWA conducts self-help emergency and supplemental food distributions needed by the members both in the camps. EFWA fights government-sanctioned profiteering by monopoly utilities and other policies that enrich the few at the expense of all our lives and our future. EFWA trains volunteer organizers in the skills to make the benefit program grow, and to fight and win real change.
