"Field to Fork" Panel at NYU

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.

Protect Farmworkers: Albany

Dear friends and allies, Please join Rural & Migrant Ministry on February 6, 2017 at 10AM in Albany as we thank Governor Cuomo for his recent stance on protecting New York progressive values, and ask him to PROTECT THOSE WHO FEED NEW YORK. We will hear from the new state senators sponsoring the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act in the State Senate, as well as Assemblywoman Nolan who has been the champion of the bill in the State Assembly.


Call the Governor and State Senator


    Where we stand

  • This year’s session will end most likely at the end of this week. Which means if the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act is to come to the floor for a vote – it must happen immediately.
  • We have 29 sponsors. (And two Republicans who have voted for it in the past). We really need to get to 32. So just one more.

    End of Session Focus

  • Call the Governor’s office: 1-518-474-8390
