Join activists, allies and members of the community as we stand together in solidarity with farmworkers across New York State on August 2nd at the White Plains Rennaisance Plaza, corner of Mamaroneck Avenue and Main Street.
This rally is cosponsored by WESPAC, engaging with the public at a common space where policies are threatening our neighbors and communities.
We are asking our Governor and state elected officials to support and finally pass the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act.
Join farmworkers, farmers, allies and activists in Albany for a rally and legislative visits as we advocate for the fair treatment of farmworkers in the state of New York and the passage of the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act (Senate Bill 2721/Assembly Bill 4189).
"You are never strong enough that you don't need help."
Immigration policy has been a prominent political topic ever since the previous presidential race. Often absent from this conversation, though, is the connection between immigration policy and food policy. In a country where 71 percent of farmworkers are foreign-born or immigrants and play an invaluable role in our food and agricultural system, it is essential to understand the links between the current immigration policies put forth by the Trump administration and the food and agricultural system in the United States.
