Naranjeros - A Film from the International Human RIghts Clinic at Harvard Law School

The Farmworker Association of Florida is proud and honored to have worked with the Harvard Law Documentary Studio at Harvard Law School in creating Naranjeros.  Directed by Harvard Law School student Lauren Estévez, the film documents the realities of being a citrus worker in Florida, whether that means unfair wages or the risks of being deported.  With FWAF staff, community and Board members speaking from their own personal experiences and about the realities they face daily, the film is a powerful narrative of what workers endure in Florida's citrus industry production.

Naranjeros is the perfect example of how we can all make a change and practice social activism in our own way.  More importantly, we can all raise awareness in regards to the injustices occurring at our dinner tables, and take a stand and make positive change!
