This Thanksgiving weekend, support migrant workers and allies who will be marching from Leamington to Windsor, Ontario to call attention to the living and working conditions of migrant workers who grow and process our food.
Migrant workers are marching to demand status, an end to exorbitant recruitment fees, better housing, safe working conditions and an end to racism and sexism in the workplace.
Allies will be walking alongside workers in solidarity with their call for justice.
Here are ways to help:
