Photo-report from the first picket of the Milk with Dignity Month of Action

The Milk with Dignity Month of Action kicked off on 10/3 with a bang. Farmworkers led a spirited picket outside of Hannaford Supermarket, calling on the company to take responsibility for abuses in its dairy supply chain and join the Milk with Dignity Program. Actions will continue on 10/14 at 5:30pm.

Join farmworkers on 10/14 (and the following weeks on 10/20 and 10/26) at the Hannaford on Shelburne Road in South Burlington to demand Milk with Dignity! (RSVP here)

Last Monday, five years to the day since Ben & Jerry’s became the first company to join Milk with Dignity, farmworkers and consumers rallied to urge Hannaford to follow in their footsteps. Picketers marched, chanted, and spoke with customers. Dairy workers delivered a copy of the latest Program Report to the store manager, showcasing the incredible transformations that Milk with Dignity has brought to dozens of farms and hundreds of farmworkers.

Check out the beautiful photos below, then help spread the word about the upcoming actions on 10/14, 10/20, and 10/26 by sharing the facebook event!
