We are delighted to announce the start of our 2019 School Supply Drive for the children of farm workers.
Farm worker rights is one of the four main focuses of our vegan food justice work. Our advocacy includes activism to change the laws and policies that allow the injustices farm workers face on a daily basis. While we fight the policy fights, we also want to show up for farm workers and their families so they are not alone in trying to meet their basic needs.
This is an expression of gratitude and solidarity, not charity.
