Kay Cuajunco



Kay Cuajunco is an organizer and popular educator passionate about building a more inclusive and intergenerational movement bridging food justice and farmworker justice. Last summer she rode with Live Real on the Food and Freedom Rides filming interviews with farmers, workers, and communities to investigate how people on the frontlines of the industrial food system are surviving its dark side and thriving in the light of their own alternatives. Currently she sits on the advisory board of Bay Localize, where she helped promote urban agriculture in Oakland, and serves on the national steering committee of the Student/Farmworker Alliance that organizes in solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to demand fair wages and working conditions for farmworkers harvesting the bulk of U.S. tomatoes in Florida. As a granddaughter of Filipino farmers, she is deeply committed to honoring the land and all life.
