Vision

Achieve health equity, social and environmental justice in migrants and refugees’ communities.

Our Community Health Workers (CHWs) serve the needs of our farmworkers.  These farmworkers are as essential as our healthcare workers but are being sent into the fields and factories without protective equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our CHWs are not volunteers, they are independent contractors who are compensated as professionals who serve their communities. 

Our migrant worker communities have ALWAYS BEEN ESSENTIAL to the health of the economy of this country.
