I have worked for Farmworker Justice, a a nonprofit organization that seeks to empower migrant and seasonal farmworkers to improve their living and working conditions, immigration status, health, occupational safety, and access to justice.

There I planned and implemented a comprehensive communications campaign for the organization’s work on behalf of farmworkers.  I wrote op-eds, blog posts, human interest stories and reports to educate Congress, the media, and the public on the living and working conditions for these low-wage workers. I also coordinated print publications (newsletters, brochures, annual report), organized media outreach and public education events, built and maintained content management systems for websites, and implemented strategic online advocacy campaigns.
