The Farmworker Movement: From North to South, East to West

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 6:00pm

First Unitarian Society of Ithaca 306 N. Aurora Street, Ithaca, NY, 14850

Ithaca hosts the final location of the 'Farmworker Movement' speaking tour, engaging with communities and allies on how advocacy and self-organization can bolster rights and protections for migrant farmworkers.

Speakers include representatives from Familias Unidas por la Justicia ', a union of independent agricultural workers from Washington State; the only labor union led by over 400 indigenous Mixteco and Triqui farmworkers. They'll be accompanied by members of The Alianza Agrícola, a western NY farmworker-led, grassroots organization that is advocating for legislation to restore access to driver's licenses for undocumented immigrant New Yorkers.

Co-sponsored by Engaged Cornell, Friends of Farmworkers, Watermargin Cooperative, TCIRC, Immigrant Farmworker Initiative, MEChA de Cornell, Cornell Farmworker Legal Clinic, Ithaca College Latin American Studies Program, and the Ithaca College Diversity Awareness Fund.
