Who We Are
The Wisconsin Migrant Coalition (WMC) was incorporated in 1998 as a statewide, issues-oriented coalition.
The Coalition was formed to advocate for the migrant and seasonal farmworkers and other agricultural workers that live and work in the state of Wisconsin.
The Coalition collaborates with local, state, and federal government departments and other entities, trade associations and organizations, employers and communities that impact or are impacted by migrant and seasonal farm workers and other workers in the agricultural, food processing, dairy, and other industries.
In 2016, the Coalition changed its name to the Wisconsin Farmworkers Coalition (WFC) to accurately reflect a broader workforce, and the expanded industries being served by WFC members, affiliate agencies and organizations.
