Eastern Farmworkers is a volunteer-run organization involved with low-income working families. We work with farmers and their workers, and former manufacturing workers who have had to assume temporary jobs after plants like Carrier relocated. We work to bridge the gap between rural and urban communities, and maintain healthy relationships between employers and employees who are often affected by the same policies. We allocate benefits such as job and housing referrals, food and clothing distribution, and volunteer dental, legal, and medical services.
La Casita Cultural Center's mission is to advance an educational and cultural agenda of civic engagement through research, cultural heritage preservation, media, and the arts, bridging the Hispanic communities of Syracuse University and Central New York.
