About Us 

Our Organization

“Organización en California de Líderes Campesinas, Inc.” represents a culmination of decades of work by farm working women (Campesinas). Farmworker women have been the leaders of many grassroots and mobilizing efforts to improve the lives of farmworker communities. Líderes Campesinas provides these long-time leaders and activists with the opportunity to coordinate their work statewide and has built collectives so that campesinas may become agents of change and be a more effective unified voice



Our Story

Our Goals


The organizations principal goal is to form a network of communication throughout the state of California to promote the development of a united effort between campesinas and other groups who advocate the rights of the campesina community.  Líderes Campesinas attempts to secure the progression of programs that help other campesinas discover their own capacity to be a leader and serve as a vehicle to guide them in the process of discovering their rights as a member of a family, local community, state, nation, and global community.

“In Planada, a small farm-worker community, we listened while Ms. Quezada held a frank, alfresco focus group over carnitas with about two dozen members of Líderes Campesinas, an organization of female farm workers. Some had come straight from work picking cherries, strawberries and purple cabbages in 90-degree heat. Others held wriggling toddlers.”
