50 Years of Service The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) serves farmworkers and their families because of a commitment made 50 years ago by President Lyndon B. Johnson to restoring our nation's fundamental promise of equality and opportunity. The 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Economic Opportunity Act were twin pillars of the "War on Poverty" to extend the American Dream to those who had been unjustly excluded.

Fifty years later, the NFJP program continues to counter the chronic unemployment and underemployment experienced by many working in agricultural labor.
