“Farmworkers Fair Labor Human Rights” hearing, Albany

January 17, 2018

Please join with West Cosgrove (Western New York Coordinator of Rural and Migrant Ministries of New York State) and LASC (Latin American Solidarity Committee of WNYPC) to attend  “Farmworkers Fair Labor Human Rights” hearing in Albany January 17th 10AM at the Legislative Office Bldg,  Albany State Capital. RMM is planning on renting a bus that day to provide round trip transportation to Albany.  Those interest in attending the rally please contact Wayne Alt. 716-430-9955 or [email protected] by January 6.

If you are unable to attend we urge you to contact your state Senator on January 17.  It is crucial that we contact Senators Ortt and Jacobs as they have both consistently voted against farmworker rights issues.

The hearing will emphasize the ethical treatment of NY farmworkers as well as presentations and testimonies from farmworkers and other human rights observers. These observers are S. Waterston (actor, “Law and Order”) and T. Gerety ( former director of Brennan Center for Justice).
