Farmworker Women’s Stories

The Bandanna Project


Las Historias de Trabajadoras Agricolas/ Farmworker Women’s Stories.
By: Leanne Tory-Murphy, 2008 SAF Sowing Seeds for Change Fellow

In the Summer of 2010 I was accompanied by four young women from the Rural and Migrant Ministry’s Youth Arts Group in a journey through New York’s Sullivan and Orange counties. Along the way we met incredible farmworker women who shared their stories and lives with us. In Nuestro Camino/ Our Journey, six women describe the places they came from, why they migrated, what they found when they came here and what their hopes are for the future.
