Let's score a goal on Hannaford!
On July 16th, hundreds of farmworkers came out for Migrant Justice's annual soccer tournament. 14 teams of farmworkers from Vermont, Maine, and New York competed, as onlookers cheered their teams and chefs and artisans from the community sold their wares.
But it wasn't all fun and games. Players took a break from their games to film a video "scoring a goal on Hannaford Supermarkets:" check out the video!
On July 29th, farmworkers will come together again, this time at the corporate headquarters of Hannaford Supermarkets in Scarborough, ME to demand dignity and respect. Dairy workers are urging the grocery chain to join the Milk with Dignity Program and commit to sourcing from farms that protect workers’ rights and well-being. But they can’t do it alone!
Will you join farmworkers on 7/29 at 2pm to picket the Hannaford headquarters? Find out more information and pledge to join the action. If you’re coming from Vermont, sign up now to reserve a seat on the bus!
And help spread the word by sharing the facebook event for July 29th!
