Student activists from Student Action with Farmworkers work on migrant’s behalf in the fields and at the statehouse. The Durham non-profit brings college students together with farmworkers through a 10-week summer internship program. The interns work with advocacy groups to help migrants gain access to health clinics, teach them about the dangers of pesticides, and promote safety in the fields. Others assist migrants with union organizing, teach migrants about their legal rights, or lobby for statewide policy changes on farmworker and immigrant issues.
