"There are days of winds, days of fury and days of tears. But there are also days of love that give us the courage to carry on." - Victor Diaz
Migrant Justice leader Victor Diaz was arrested on Thursday, April 21st by undercover ICE agents outside a Mexican cultural event in Stowe, VT. He had returned the day before from a national gathering of the Food Chain Workers Alliance in Los Angeles, representing Vermont farmworkers in an effort to build a unified movement for fair food.
Victor is a dairy farmworker in Vermont and a nationally-recognized human rights leader. Two years ago, he reached out to Migrant Justice after enduring years of inhumane conditions on a Vermont dairy farm. Farmworkers and allies joined forces to march on the farm and won back $1,800 in stolen wages.
