Dear friends of the Vermont Migrant Farmworker Solidarity Project,

We write to you at a critical moment for social change and economic justice and ask you to take 3 important actions below.

While on the one hand we are moved and inspired by the growing energy in this country and around the world to say NO to political and economic systems made for, by, and of the 1% super-elite Wall Streeters, we are also sobered by the reality facing our immigrant communities throughout the country and right here in Vermont.

Vermonters Succeed in Restoring Principle of Universality With Passage of Universal Health Care Bill

Main Site Nav: 

Montpelier, VT May 3-- Statehouse -- Members of the grassroots Healthcare Is a Human Right campaign and the VT Migrant Farmworker Solidarity Project cheered on Tuesday, May 3, as the joint house senate committee voted to accept a reconciled version of the universal healthcare bill, H.202, which removed a provision excluding undocumented workers from health care coverage. Observers credit Vermonters’ unhesitating and unflinching demand that “universal means everyone” for turning a political hot potato into a victory.

Immigrant Rights are Human Rights and Health Care is a Human Right!!!

While the federal government continues to fail to create humane and just immigration and food systems we in Vermont are faced with community decisions.

Do we work together to build welcoming, just and humane communities for everyone who lives and works here?

OR

Do we take the path of Arizona and further exclude, discriminate against, and punish a population already living on the margins of our society and yet doing so much to sustain it!

Enosburg Falls- Sixteen year old Gabino Hernandez , a junior at Enosburg Falls High School, is one of the voices that has been recorded on a website featuring interviews with Vermont's migrant farmworkers. Hernandez has a special interest in the project because his parents are migrant workers on the Gervais Farm in Bakersfield.
