Over our 40 years, CATA has achieved some great things!

  • In 1993, we assisted with the formation of the first independent union of mushroom workers in Kennett Square, PA – The Kaolin Workers’ Union.
  • In 2007, workers joined together to paint a Mural in Guanajuato, Mexico to celebrate the power of organizing.
  • In 2010, we joined with 250,000 immigrants and allies from all over the country to March for Immigration Reform in Washington DC.
  • In 2017, we worked with the City of Bridgeton to create a Municipal Identification program for all residents of the city.
  • In 2019, CATA worked with other organizations around the state of New Jersey to win access to drivers’ licenses for ALL, regardless of immigration status.

Over the next decade, we will continue to fight for Workers’ Rights, Immigrant Rights and Food Justice.  We are currently working to:

  • Win access to Drivers’ Licenses for all in Pennsylvania – working with the Driving PA Forward Coalition.
  • Working to educate mushroom workers and poultry workers about their rights in the workplace in Pennsylvania and Delmarva.
  • Identify farmworkers’ top concerns around pesticide use in New Jersey.
  • Growing and harvesting over 20 different varieties of organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs in our 3 Organic Community Gardens in Bridgeton, NJ, Kennett Square, PA and in Salisbury, MD.
