According to a 2005 survey, 53% of farmworkers are undocumented (without legal authorization), 25% are United States citizens, and 21% are legal permanent residents.
SAF depends on financial support from individuals like YOU to continue our work with farmworkers. SAF is a 501(c) 3 non-profit, charitable organization.
