Webisode 1: Hudson Valley Farmworker Stories

An Oral History of the Farm Workers of New York

Meet Heriberto, Carlos, Angela, Teresa, and Antonio. All of them live and work in the Hudson Valley of New York. They shared their stories with two of Rural and Migrant Ministry’s college interns, Lisa and Steven, in the summer of 2014, with the trust that we would amplify their voices and bring awareness to the conditions on modern-day small farms in New York.

This is part one of a five-part series entitled Farm Worker Stories: An Oral History of the Farm Workers of New York. Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc. (RMM) is a non-sectarian non-profit with an over 30-year history of nurturing leadership in rural New York State through programs of youth empowerment, education, and accompaniment of workers. RMM hopes that these films can be used as a tool to amplify the voices of farmworkers, who often go unheard.
