The pressure on Hannaford Supermarkets to join the Milk with Dignity program is undeniably growing. In the campaign’s largest day of action to date, dairy workers and consumers visited 30 Hannaford locations across the northeast, calling on the grocery chain to take responsibility for the rights and well-being of the farmworkers behind its store-brand milk.
This year’s mass action on International Workers’ Day launches the next phase of the Milk with Dignity campaign. Farmworkers are calling on campaign supporters to “adopt” their local Hannaford and commit to taking regular actions. In pairs or small groups, allies across the northeast can build support for Milk with Dignity by flyering customers, speaking with managers, and placing lawn signs outside their local store.
