From October 2nd to October 24th, Migrant Justice will embark on a 3-week speaking tour, taking us to 7 states for a total of 28 presentations. The Dignity Tour will bring us to audiences around the region to share the success story of the Milk with Dignity program and the “new day for human rights in dairy.”
The Dignity Tour will also build support for the campaign calling on supermarket giant Hannaford to join the Milk with Dignity program and take responsibility for the rights and well-being of the farmworkers behind Hannaford-brand milk. We will travel to every state where Hannaford has a store, starting in the company’s home state of Maine.
Throughout the three weeks of the Dignity Tour, Migrant Justice will connect with audiences in high schools and colleges, in farms and granges, and at churches, community centers, health clinics, and general stores. At each stop, the public will hear from farmworkers and organizers about the incredible human rights transformation underway in the dairy industry and will be able to make their voices heard, telling Hannaford that it’s time to get with the program!
p.s. The unique potential of Milk with Dignity and worker-driven social responsibility programs was just recognized in the latest issue of the academic journal Nature Food. Check it out!
