Their goals are to ensure that every farm worker has access to legal and labor education. This is a way for us to create a world in which farming is not only a viable career, but also a way to preserve ancestral lands, heritage, and lifestyles.  MCDC Member Marivel Mendoza-Matheu,  is a Founding member.
