Ben & Jerry's: Stand for Farmworker's Rights!
Join the Milk with Dignity Program
Get up! Get Down! Milk with Dignity's Coming to Town!
Join us at 294 N. Winooski Ave, in Burlington, VT at 11:30am where we will march at 12pm sharp to dowtown Burlington calling on Ben & Jerry's to Join the Milk with Dignity Program!
Our Demand: Ben & Jerry's must ensure farmworkers' rights are respected in their supply chain by joining the Milk with Dignity Program
Why this action: For several years now Vermont dairy worker members of Migrant Justice have been educating Ben & Jerry's about serious human rights violations in its supply chain. VT farmworkers have called on Ben & Jerry's to join a new program to ensure farmworker's rights are secured. Ben & Jerry's has yet to make a serious commitment to negotiate an agreement with farmworkers and join the Milk with Dignity Program.
