Migrant Justice Announces New Milk With Dignity Campaign at Farm to Plate Conference

On Thursday, Migrant Justice's Abel Luna, following a speech by VT Governor Shumlin, addressed a crowd of 300 people at the annual Vermont Farm to Plate conference to a backdrop of this powerful slideshow:

Abel reflected that Governor Shumlin's rosy picture of the Vermont Food System "Is not the reality I see when I go out to farms." Then he offered a solution, "We invite you to support the Milk with Dignity Campaign. Middlebury College students took the lead launching a student petition drive this week calling upon Middlebury College to ensure that all dairy products purchased by the College support the human rights of farmworkers and provide a financial incentive to farmers!" Luna explained the campaign is also designed to support those farmers who do the right thing when it comes to labor and housing.

Breaking the ICE // Rompiendo el Hielo: VT goes to AZ to defend immigrant rights

By: Chris Schroth, Migrant Justice ally

The immigrant rights movement in the US has reached a new level of energy: people are not taking it any more and demanding our rights.  That was the message that Abel Garcia, a farmworker member from Veracruz, Mexico, living in Washington County, learned earlier this month.
