Local Student Alliance uses MySpace site to fight for social justice

By Tracy X. Miguel

The Student Farmworker Alliance, known as SFA, is sending a message via the Internet to eliminate sweatshop working conditions and modern-day slavery in the fields.

SFA, a national network of youth and student organizations allied with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, was one of three nominees for a MySpace Impact Award for social justice.

This award is presented to MySpace members who use the social networking site as a tool to help make a positive change in their community and the world, according to Jin Yoon, a MySpace public affairs coordinator.

MySpace users voted online at for the winner.

Other nominated sites were Justice for Children International, a nonprofit organization that works toward the abolition of child sex trafficking and exploitation through advocacy, prevention and aftercare, and International Justice Mission, a human rights agency that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and oppression.

The winner of the Social Action Award was Justice for Children International. That organization received a $10,000 cash prize as well as a featured place on Myspace.
