A graphic of the video title

Weekly Win: Alma shared this video from Episcopal Farmworker Ministry (EFWM) based in Dunn, North Carolina. EFWM works with agricultural workers, (farmworkers, meat processing plant workers, and workers from nurseries, packing houses and poultry, swine, or livestock farms), and immigrant families in Eastern rural NC, to coordinate direct services, leadership programs, community education programs, and advocacy in support of the community. EFWM also has a disaster response program, hosts vaccination events, and does advocacy. One of their most important projects is their Promotores program, where community members help their community get accurate information about the vaccine. The promotores filmed a short video about their experience getting the vaccine. We hope you enjoy it!



Have a safe and healthy weekend!
