CATA - The Farmworkers Support Committee is a non-profit organization founded by migrant farmworkers in New Jersey in 1979. CATA is a grassroots, membership-based organization working with farmworkers and the Latino immigrant community in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. CATA’s work focuses on workers’ rights, health and safety in the workplace, immigrant's rights, and food justice.
The Mission of CATA is to empower farmworkers and immigrant workers to fight for their rights so they can live a full life. We work together to achieve safe working and living conditions, fair wages, and to be treated with respect and dignity.
