Agricultural Justice Project


Fair for all who labor, from field to table


What We Do

The Agricultural Justice Project brings together workers, farmers, and their communities to build a food system that’s fair and just.

Food Justice Certified label, fair farm

Setting standards of fairness

We convene stakeholders to set standards of food justice, rooted in accountability to workers and community-scale farmers. These standards are the basis for our Food Justice Certification program.

Sharing knowledge & resources

Through our technical assistance program, we help people in farm and food workplaces implement the fair labor practices embodied in our Food Justice Certified standards.

Building the movement

Through all of our programs and advocacy, we foster cooperation and solidarity among farmers, workers, and allies in order to build a movement broad and deep enough to transform the way the US grows and distributes food. 

Let’s build a fair food system together.
