Farm Worker Awareness Week: Bandana Project
March 30, 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Trinity Commons

The Bandana Project uses white bandanas as a symbol of the sexual exploitation of farmworker women. Participants can decorate white bandanas to honor those who have taken action to hold the perpetrators and their employers responsible for this violence. These bandanas are also a show of support to victims whose shame and fear prevents them from taking action. Help support, fortify and empower farmworker women as they face this difficult problem in the hopes that they will no longer have to suffer in silence.
