FWAF is a membership organization of
more than 6,330 farmworker families
from predominantly Mexican, Haitian,
African American, Guatemalan and
Salvadorian communities. The goal is to
build a strong multi-racial economically
viable organization of farmworkers in
Florida, empowering farmworkers to
respond to, and gain control over the
social, political, economic and workplace
issues that affect their lives.
Since the early 1990s, FWAF has
addressed pesticides, field sanitation,
and other health and safety issues,
educating and training members to learn
their rights, secure passage of Florida's
Rights-to-Know law to protect
farmworkers, file violation complaints
advocate better government
enforcement and participate in a study
on the effects of pesticides on
815 S. Park Ave.
Apopka, FL 32703.
