Calvary hosts the Youth Arts Group which is part of the Rural & Migrant Ministry. Since 1981 Rural & Migrant Ministry, a statewide, non
-profit organization, has been standing proudly with the the rural and migrant communities throughout New York.
We act to overcome the prejudices and poverty that degrade and debilitate people within rural New York by building communities that celebrate diversity, achieve true mutuality and fight for dignity and opportunity to all.
We work with rural leaders, both young and older, who are committed to equality and cooperative opportunity, especially within agricultural systems. We also support people in faith, labor and university communities who seek to stand with rural leaders as allies.
Rural & Migrant Ministry works for the creation of a just rural New York State through:
- Nurturing leadership
- Standing with the disenfranchised, especially farmworkers and rural workers
- Changing unjust systems and structures
