The Landworkers’ Alliance is a grassroots union of farmers, growers and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food system for everyone.
We work for a future where farmers are able to work with dignity and earn a decent living, and people can access healthy, affordable food from local producers.
We are a democratic member-led union, run by producers for producers. All our policies and representation comes from farmers, growers and land-based workers who have direct experiences of the issues we campaign on.
We are members of La Via Campesina, the global movement of small-scale producers and peasant farmers.
We stand for a food system based on the principles of food sovereignty where everybody has access to healthy, regionally produced, affordable food from farmers they can trust.
We want to see power put back in the hands of producers and local communities rather than supermarkets and industrial processors.
We believe that farmers and communities must be at the heart of decision-making and have a strong voice in agricultural policy making.
