Sexual Assault in the workplace
The following is an open letter excerpt from the Alianza Nacional de Campesinas.

Dear Sisters,

We write on behalf of the approximately 700,000 women who work in the agricultural fields and packing sheds across the United States… Countless farmworker women across our country suffer in silence because of the widespread sexual harassment and assault that they face at work.

We believe and stand with you.
