Serving Migrant Communities
To reach out to migrant farmworkers, develop relationships and credibility within the migrant community over time (e.g., with organizations and businesses that migrant farmworkers use). In addition, consider initiating communitywide task forces to develop comprehensive strategies that coordinate efforts among governmental and nongovernmental agencies and organizations. For example, you might establish a committee or working group with representatives from the migrant farmworkers' community to address their specific challenges and risk factors. Or, you might develop a directory of resources or handouts to ensure that sexually assaulted migrant farmworkers know their rights and the assistance available to them.
