Share a story

A ministry of the Episcopal Dioceses of East Carolina and North Carolina, the Episcopal Farmworker Ministry responds to the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of farmworkers and their families, and actively supports opportunities for them to become self-directive. We seek to minister to farmworkers in three principal ways:

• through direct services

• through development and support of programs that work towards the empowerment of farmworkers and increases the level of interaction between farmworkers and the public

• through farmworker leadership development, advocacy, and education aimed toward a systematic change of agricultural policy at local and state levels.

Ministerio Episcopal para los Trabajadores del Campo responde a las necesidades físicas, emocionales, sociales, y espirituales de los trabajadores migrantes y sus families, y apoya activamente las oportunidades para que se conviertan independientes. Ministramos a los trabajadores en tres maneras principales:

• a través de servicios directos

• a través del desarrollo y apoyo de programas que trabajan hacia el empoderamiento de los trabajadores agrícolas y aumenta el nivel de interacción entre los trabajadores del campo y el público

• a través del desarrollo del liderazgo de los trabajadores agrícolas, la defensa de los trabajadores, y la educación orientada hacia un cambio sistemático de la política agrícola a nivel local y estatal.
