(Closed) Border Agricultural Workers Project

BAWP is an organizing effort initiated by Sin Fronteras Organizing Project as an attempt to help farmworkers improve their wages and their working and living conditions. The majority of the border farmworkers work in the multimillion dollar chile industry of Southern New Mexico. The purpose of this project is to promote and protect the civil and human rights of both documented and undocumented agricultural workers. Our commitment is the empowerment of the farmworker community to develop and to implement long-term solutions to the economic and social problems which are the result of the exploitation and oppression of an agricultural system which places profits on top of human dignity.
