Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United), is Oregon's union of farmworkers, nursery, and reforestation workers, and Oregon's largest Latino organization. PCUN's fundamental goal is to empower farmworkers to understand and take action against systematic exploitation and all of its effects. To achieve this end, PCUN is involved in community and workplace organizing on many different levels.
PCUN is currently building a new building to house their Leadership Institute which will build the leadership capacity and political consciousness to sustain and expand that movement and to propel a host of related struggles, such as immigrants’ rights. Volunteers are needed (preferably a group of at least 3 volunteers) to move dirt, gravel, etc. as they prepare the foundation for the building. Volunteers will also receive a tour of the PCUN office and radio station and learn about PCUN’s work and vision for the future.
