May 1st: Adopt-A-Hannaford Day of Action!
Posted Wed, 04/20/2022 - 5:27pm
We recently put out a call for Milk with Dignity supporters to “Adopt a Hannaford" by committing to take solidarity actions at their local store on May 1st and beyond. The response has been overwhelming!
From Machias, ME to Milton, VT, from Waltham, MA to West Lebanon, NH, and everywhere in between, people are celebrating International Workers’ Day by standing in solidarity with dairy workers’ fight for human rights. In what is shaping up to be our largest coordinated day of action ever, farmworkers and allies will be engaging Hannaford customers and managers at stores across the region with a clear message: We want Milk with Dignity!
Farmworkers are concentrating forces at the day’s two principal actions: an 11:30 rally in Middlebury, VT, and a march starting in South Burlington, VT that kicks off at 1:30pm. Folks are encouraged to attend the action closest to them, and – if possible – join in one of the day’s main events as well. And if you’re not in the northeast, be sure to leave a comment on Hannaford’s social media pages on May 1st letting them know that you support farmworkers!
This Mayday, see you at your local Hannaford!
