Bi-national People's Tribunal on the Struggles of Farmworkers in North America

On Friday, March 29th through Sunday, March 31st, WJCNY will be participating in the Bi-national People's Tribunal on the Struggles of Farmworkers in North America, hosted by the Food Chain Workers Alliance at the People's Forum in New York City. This tribunal is a grassroots gathering of farmworker organizations from across the US and Canada that will feature worker testimonies foscused on three priority areas: health & safety, freedom of movement, and climate justice. Register to participate in person or virtually via Zoom, or watch the live stream on YouTube


As a longtime member of the Food Chain Workers Alliance, WJCNY is thrilled to participate in this convening. Among the featured speakers will be Yesenia, a dairy farmworker from Western NY who will share about her experiences with workplace sexual harassment and retaliation. With WJCNY's help, Yesenia was able to hold her former employer accountable and now she is speaking out about the need for safe, healthly, and dignified working conditions for all farmworkers.
