Harvest of Justice

Thriving Rural Communities’ Harvest of Justice program aims to help students better understand the issues affecting migrant farm workers in our state.

Through a partnership with the North Carolina Council of Churches and the Hispanic House of Studies, students travel to Dunn, N.C., where they visit the Episcopal Farmworker Camp.
