Purpose: Migrant Justice builds the voice, capacity and power of the migrant farmworker community and engages community partners to organize for social and economic justice and human rights. We believe lasting systemic change requires changing not just how our food and economic systems work, but also changing who is at the table leading. Through Migrant Justice, migrant farmworkers, with ally support, are building community and organizing capacity to achieve concrete victories such as creating one of the best Bias-Free Policing Policies in the country, ensuring undocumented workers access Vermont's universal health care, and passing a law that opens the door for access to driver's licenses regardless of immigration status.
At Migrant Justice we work to engage, educate and organize communities and allies to effectively challenge US immigration, economic, and trade policies and practices that adversely affect farm workers and family farmers. We work towards the vision of truly humane and dignified farming communities and fair food systems everywhere making migration a choice and not a need.
