The Landworkers’ 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!
