Dignity Tour: Justicia Migrante/Migrant Justice comes to PVWC!

March 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the PVWC Northampton Worker Committee in welcoming Migrant Justice / Justicia Migrante to western MA!

What is Migrant Justice?

Migrant Justice is a grassroots organization based in Burlington, VT. We deeply admire their work, and their dedication to building power among workers and immigrants across their state. Their Milk with Dignity campaign aims to get major dairy purchasers like Ben and Jerrys, and now Hannaford supermarkets to comply with labor demands that workers from small dairy farms across Vermont have made for higher wages, improved labor standards and more dignified work conditions. On MLK day this year, they launched their Dignity Tour, a two-week speaking tour throughout the northeast to build power and support behind their Milk with Dignity Campaign. We are lucky to be one of their stops on the tour!

The event will take place during a regularly scheduled Northampton worker committee meeting at our office in 20 Hampton Ave.., suite #200, but are opening it up to the community to come meet and learn from Migrant Justice organizers. We hope to see you there!

Details:
-The event will be in Spanish, but interpretation will be provided
-Childcare will also be provided
-We will have dinner from 5:45-6:20
