Migrant Justice Launches Milk with Dignity Campaign!
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.
