Throughout the Corona Crisis, migrant farmworkers continue to work day in and day out to produce the milk and dairy products that line supermarket shelves. Join Migrant Justice and the Milk with Dignity Standards Council for a 1.5 hour presentation to learn more about farmworkers’ groundbreaking Milk with Dignity program, which brings together farmworkers, consumers, farmer owners and corporate buyers in order to foster a sustainable Northeast dairy industry that advances the human rights of farmworkers, supports the long-term interests of farm owners, and provides an ethical supply chain for retail food companies and consumers. Through Milk with Dignity, farmworkers have secured important protections for their health and safety even as the pandemic has strained many supply chains to the breaking point. We know that the cows don't milk themselves: Learn more about how you can get involved and help expand this powerful solution to the Hannaford supermarket’s supply chain.
Migrant Justice is a grassroots organization founded and led by immigrant farmworkers sustaining Vermont's dairy industry. Their mission is to build the voice, capacity, and power of the farmworker community and engage community partners to organize for economic justice and human rights.

The Milk with Dignity Standards Council objectively assesses working and housing conditions on participating dairy farms and works with farmworkers and farm owners to ensure that farms meet human rights standards.
