On June 17th Join Vermont dairy workers for The March for Milk with Dignity
Ben & Jerry's: Join the Milk with Dignity Program Now!
Get up! Get Down! Milk with Dignity's Coming to Town!
Our Demand: Ben & Jerry's must ensure farmworkers' rights are respected in their supply chain by joining the Milk with Dignity Program, without further delay, as promised 2 years ago!
Why this action: Since 2009, when dairy worker José Obeth Santiz Cruz was killed in a bad workplace accident on a farm that supplies milk to a cooperative that supplies milk to Ben & Jerry's, Vermont dairy worker members of Migrant Justice have been educating Ben & Jerry's about serious human rights violations in its supply chain. In 2014, VT farmworkers invited Ben & Jerry's to join the Milk with Dignity Program--a new program to ensure farmworker's rights are secured. Ben & Jerry's committed, in the New York Times no less, to join the program 2 years ago in June 2015 and has not followed through on its commitment.
Details: Meet at Vermont statehouse at 7am. We will marching approximately 13 miles through the Vermont's iconic working landscapes, sustained by farmworkers, and regrouping with others who at 2pm at the Waterbury Park N Ride at 2pm for the last leg of the march to Be & Jerry's Waterbury Factor. Stay tuned to our website for updates.
