Claudia Rosales joined the Pioneer Valley Workers Center team as Farmworker Organizer in March 2020 before becoming Co-Director. Through this position, she was instrumental in growing the membership base from 300 to 500 and expanding our COVID-Relief Solidarity Fund.
Despite the many challenges of organizing during a pandemic, she met 1-1 with more than 200 workers to discuss their labor conditions and to teach them their rights. Before joining our staff, Claudia was a farmworker and a long-standing member of our Springfield Workers Committee and was a founding member of the Riquezas del Campo farm cooperative.
She was born in El Salvador to a farming family, where she worked for many years. She is intimately familiar with the problematic realities immigrants face in the United States and believes in organizing to build a better future.
