WHERE: Ilsley Public Library Community Meeting Room, Middlebury
WHEN: Tuesday, March 19, 7:00-8:30pm
Representatives from Vermont Migrant Justice will be speaking at Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury on March 19 at 7:00pm, hosted by the Middlebury Chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). The public is welcome to attend and learn about the struggle of migrant farmworkers in Addison County and throughout the state.
Migrant Justice is a grassroots farmworker-led organization building the voice, capacity, and power of the farmworker community and engaging community partners to organize for economic justice and human rights. Migrant farmworkers in Vermont have developed a human rights map which guides their campaign work from access to transportation and healthcare, to freedom from discrimination to just and dignified living and working conditions through their Milk with Dignity Program. This is an important and timely program that will provide our community with much-needed information about our neighbors and how we can support them and advocate for their human rights.
