A FARMWORKER PICKED
WHATEVER YOU’VE EATEN TODAY

On Wednesday, marking the first day of National Farmworker Awareness Week (March 25-31), USHLI signed on with Justice for Migrant Women and organizations from across the country in sending a letter to Congress outlining the pressing health and welfare concerns of the farmworker community during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the threats to the security of our entire food supply.

Your organization is needed to sign on to a letter to Members of Congress during this COVID-19 crisis. Please take a minute to stand up for the 2-3 million farmworkers, including 900,000 Latinas, to protect them and their families as they work to feed this ungrateful nation and leaders who are indifferent toward their plight. Also, please feel free to share this national “SIGN ON” request with all persons in your network.  

The deadline to sign on is March 31, Cesar E. Chavez Day, but please sign on now

For your reference, attached please find the final letter that will include the signatures of all supporting organizations.
