CIRS program areas

Our mission directs us to increase social justice in rural California for all residents, building sustainable communities based on a healthy agriculture.  Foremost in our work are marginalized populations.

Our goals are to:

  • Increase public awareness of farmworker issues and conditions.
  • Improve policies that impact farmworkers and sustainable agriculture.
  • Increase the credibility of the social justice movement by providing objective data.
  • Offer solutions to challenges that are beneficial to both growers and farmworkers.
  • Increase the viability of small to mid-sized growers.
  • To achieve our goals, we work in three broad program areas realizing that there is overlap among three.
