Equal Rights for Migrant Workers

Equal Rights for Migrant Workers!

Stop the Farm Workforce 

Modernization Act!

Register here.

Many expected Joe Biden to make immigrant rights a top priority for his administration. While he has reversed some of the worst of Trump’s executive orders, he has kept the border closed, expelled hundreds of thousands of people, jailed thousands in detention facilities, and abandoned his immigration reform bill that would have at least opened some paths to legalization. 

Instead, he is pushing for the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (FWMA) that would further criminalize migrant workers in the interests of big agribusiness. Join this webinar to learn about the FWMA, strategize about how we can pressure our congressional delegation to stop its passage, and encourage them to stand up for equal rights for migrants. 

Speakers will include:

Representatives of Migrant Justice

Representatives of Vermont Interfaith Action

Liz Kessler, Community Voices for Immigrant Rights

And more to be announced.
