Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, Futures Without Violence, along with its partners, have launched two new projects to promote health, leadership, and collaboration between farmworker leaders and community health centers in farmworker communities.

Futures Without Violence (FUTURES), Lideres Campesinas, and Alianza Nacional de Campesinas (Alianza), together launched a pilot project to address the health impact of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and toxic stress in farmworker communities in California through ACEs education, screening, and response. Project NACES, built in collaboration with local community health centers and our evaluation partners, aims to increase opportunities for farmworkers to inform healthcare screening and responses to ACEs, increase ACEs education in farmworker communities, build partnerships between community health centers and local farmworker leaders, and ultimately improve access to care. The project is funded by California’s ACEs Aware initiative through the UCLA-UCSF ACEs Aware Family Resilience Network (UCAAN) pilot project program.

Alianza and FUTURES will also share a new resource on intimate partner violence and health care access developed with support from Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation, a project of FUTURES. Built in collaboration with farmworker leaders from throughout the U.S., the safety card tool, “Health, Healing, and Healthy Relationships”, can be used by health care providers and staff, advocates, and survivors to share information on healthy and unhealthy relationships, their impact on health, and resources for support.
