MOVOZ is a multimedia project dedicated to collecting the narratives of farm workers in California. Most importantly our goal is to gather the oral histories of agricultural migrants from rural Mexico in order to archive them with the Library of Congress. We also plan to broadcast these narratives to people who might be unfamiliar with the lives of this important segment of our work force through radio, the internet, social media and other venues.

The Mission of MOVOZ is to collect the oral histories of farmworkers in California and of towns of rural Mexico they come from, to distribute those stories through radio broadcast and multimedia platforms and to archive them for posterity.
