Collection Overview

Founded in 1992 in Durham, North Carolina, Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring students and farmworkers together to learn about each other's lives, share resources and skills, improve conditions for farmworkers, and build diverse coalitions working for social change. The SAF records comprise: correspondence; meeting agendas; student projects; reports, articles, and other publications; event files; teaching materials; photos; scrapbooks; ephemera; and other documentation of SAF's programs. Materials relate more widely to immigrant and migrant worker issues, service learning, labor organizing, and protests and boycotts across the U.S.

The largest series (63 boxes) contains hundreds of individual SAF student projects directed by college-age students and interns as well as farmworker and migrant youths. Materials also include administrative files, many of which house intern applications. Project files typically contain recorded interviews, often with transcripts; essays; notebooks; artwork; poetry; audio and video recordings; theater materials; and photographs in analaog and digital formats. Some photograph albums and collages are also found here. Most of the projects took place in North Carolina but also in South Carolina. Umbrella programs include Into the Fields (ITF) and Levante. Major themes involve worker education, housing, health, and pesticide safety; leadership development; and grassroots theater as a tool for teaching and activism. Materials are in English and Spanish. Many other materials on SAF projects are found in the Administrative Series.

The large Administrative Files Series contains organizational records created or compiled by SAF staff and are organized in subseries for SAF projects, fundraising, general administrative files, organizations, and resource files (articles, fliers, and other publications).

The Printed Material Series contains Student Action with Farmworkers publications, SAF press coverage, student papers and theses, some children's books, and farmworker-related reports, articles, newsletters, data sheets, resource directories, and alerts from around the world.

The Joan Preiss Papers Series contains records related to an activist and long-time collaborator of SAF. Comprises a variety of printed materials, primarily articles and newsletters, as well as correspondence, protest ephemera, promotional material for unions and activist organizations, meeting notes, student papers, and photographs. The materials relate to migrants and farmworkers both in North Carolina and throughout the United States.

Finally, the Ephemera and Artifacts Series contains items such as posters, t-shirts, stickers, and buttons related to Burger King, Subway, Gallo, and Mt. Olive boycotts and protests. Some materials relate to protests and boycotts in other regions such as Florida and Western states. Also contains SAF publicity ephemera, and props and other materials from the Levante activist theater group.

Acquired as part of the Human Rights Archive at Duke University.

Into the Fields: Student Documentary Work, 1990-2015 and undated

The projects usually consist of paper records as well as audiovisual media, and may contain recorded interviews, interview transcripts, print and digital photos, and student/intern essays, blog posts, reflection notebooks, and occasional artwork. Interview materials are often in Spanish as well as English.

Projects are centered around living and working conditions and social life in migrant farmworker communities. Many focus on aspects of folklife and the day-to-day lives of individuals. Multi-year ITF projects taken up by groups of students include "Recollections of Home" and "Folklife Documentary Projects." Each individual component project under these project umbrellas is individually foldered with the project title and student name(s).

Audio, video, and digital media, chiefly containing recorded interviews, videos, and digital photographs, have been separated from the project papers for preservation reasons, and are located in the Audiovisual and Digital Materials subseries within the Student Project series. Additional materials were often posted by the interns and students to online repositories administered by SAF but may not be present in this collection.

A few items are more generally related to Student Action with Farmworkers events or resources rather than to student projects, such as a copy of the 1986 documentary film "Wrath of Grapes" about the Chavez and United Farmworkers campaign against dangerous working conditions for farmworkers.

Media formats in the collection include: VHS cassettes, cassette tapes, computer diskettes, mini digital video disks, mini-disks, one film reel, and many CDs and DVDs. Some but not all media have been migrated to a server; digital files are available on request.

Students also made use of an SAF server to upload electronic project files. These have not yet been transferred to the library collection.

Project materials are closed to use unless permission expressly granted by donor.

Original media are closed to use. Digital use copies are available on request; advance notice required. In addition, transcripts or summaries of oral histories and other interviews are often available in student project folders.

Please contact the Rubenstein Library for assistance before coming to use this collection.

Wrath of Grapes film reel, 1986?

Film can is marked with the title, Wrath of Grapes, "return to Joan Preiss," and "Triangle Friends of the United Farmworkers, 2722 McDowell St., Durham, NC."

Appears to be a professionally-produced copy by Image Transform, Inc. of the 1986 documentary film about farmworkers and the grape industry, featuring footage from Cesar Chavez's famous "Wrath of Grapes" speech and campaign against the use of dangerous pesticides, and hazardous working conditions in California agriculture.

A two-part online video of the film is available through the University of San Diego's Farmworker Movement Documentation Project.

Open for research. However, original film is closed to use. A viewing copy must be made for access. Please contact the Rubenstein Library before coming to use this material.

Consists of a 9" reel of 16 mm film, completely filled, in a plastic film can.

Puppet, 2003-2004

Big Papa is a puppet that was used by SAF's theater group from 2003-2004 to represent the negative aspects of corporate agriculture. The puppet was created by NC sculpture artist Daniel L. Mathewson (1964-2011) for the play Gigantes en los Campos/Giants in the Fields written by NC writer Cara Page. The Big Papa character had few lines, but loomed ominously over scenes in the play as a method of intimidation and mockery of the farmworker characters. The play critiqued the H2A Guestworker Program which brings thousands of farmworkers to labor in the fields of North Carolina picking tobacco, cucumbers and other crops.

Historical Note

Adapted from Student Action with Farmworkers website: http://saf-unite.org/

Founded in 1992, Student Action with Farmworkers is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to bring students and farmworkers together to learn about each other's lives, share resources and skills, improve conditions for farmworkers, and build diverse coalitions working for social change. SAF accomplishes its mission by working with farmworkers to address their concerns through documentation of human rights violations, grassroots education and mobilization, leadership development of young people, policy advocacy, and support of labor organizing.

Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF) traces its history to the 1970s when child psychiatrist Dr. Robert Coles and professor Bruce Payne led twelve Duke University students in a summer-long Migrant Project, investigating conditions in NC migrant camps, testifying before the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and successfully lobbying for the creation of NC Farmworker Legal Services. In the early 1980s, Payne and other faculty and students at Duke founded the Interns in Conscience project of the Hart Leadership Program, and groups of students went to southern Florida during summer breaks to work with agencies serving farmworkers.

In 1990, a grant from the U.S. Department of Education to the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke funded college student volunteers documenting the lives of migrant farmworker children. Fourteen Duke students in the summer of 1990 and eleven more in 1991 participated in the Center's Migrant Summer Program along with several University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill students. In 1992, students from Duke and UNC participated in a joint service-learning class about farmworker issues and the summer internship program.

Inspired by other activists, a group of students enlisted farmworker advocates, farmworkers, and community members to incorporate SAF as a nonprofit in 1992. Since 1992, SAF has directly impacted thousands of farmworkers, students and community members

As of 2007, the goals of SAF include:

  1. To provide farmworkers and their families with greater access to existing resources through collaborations with farmworker advocacy organizations and community groups
  2. To link student groups working with farmworkers in order to share their experiences and ideas
  3. To increase the involvement of farmworkers in leadership and decision-making roles within SAF and to encourage such involvement within other organizations working on farmworker issues
  4. To create a supportive environment for the efforts of farmworkers to improve their status in our society
  5. To create internships and other projects that are mutually beneficially for students and farmworkers
  6. To encourage student commitment to justice and social action
  7. To increase interaction, communication and understanding among people of different backgrounds
  8. To provide students from farmworker families with educational and career opportunities
  9. To provide information on farmworker issues for students, faculty, religious organizations, advocacy organizations, and community groups
