Buffalo Mountain Co-op Stands with Migrant Justice

Dear Buffalo Mountain Co-op Members,
Vermont dairy worker’s have an important campaign underway calling for a national day of action on June 20th to urge Ben & Jerry’s to stand for farm worker’s rights in their supply chain by joining a new worker’s rights initiative–The Milk with Dignity Program
Dairy farm worker’s in Vermont work 60-80 hrs a week; 40% earn less than Vt minimum wage and don’t have a day off; 30% have had a work place injury or illness; and 20% face wage theft.  But there’s hope! VT dairy workers need you solidarity! 
Here’s what you can do:
  1. Sign on to the #MilkwithDignity organizational letter of support.
  2. Email your networks about June 20th day of action (Sample language below).
  3. Organize an action on June 20th! Click here for the Action Toolkit: http://bit.ly/J20ActionTools
