Cultivating Change: Farmworker Organizing in New York

Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 5:30pm

Virtual Event

The Farm Laborers Fair Labor Practices Acts signed into law in 2019 was a victory for New York farmworkers. After years of organizing, worker-led organizations and community members celebrated the expansion of labor rights to farmworkers, historically excluded from these protections in the state. Passing the bill was just the beginning, and the pandemic stifled the work of implementing these hard-won and necessary protections. Please join organizers from the Workers' Center of Central New York and Alianza Agricola to discuss their experiences regarding the expansion of NYS labor protections and the road ahead.

This event is part of this year’s ILR Union Days: "Democracy at Work!”, and is free and open to all community members.

Sponsored by the ILR School, the Worker Institute, the Cornell Farmworker Program, the ILR Office of Career Services, the Graduate Labor Organization (GLO), MILRSO, Peoples’ Organizing Collective (POC) USAS Local #3, History Department, American Studies Department, Cornell Law School, Government Department, Center for the Study of Inequality, Art Department. Thank you for your support!
