Landworkers Alliance

The Landworkersโ€™ Alliance is a grassroots union of farmers, growers and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food system for everyone.

Members of the Via Campesina, the democratic member-led union is runby producers for producers and is a great inspiration for creating strong communities, with clear purpose and effective mechanisms to empower its members.

What we love about them:

The democratic model!
