Thank you to all who joined us on the first day of National Dairy Month for the release of our report “Milked: Dairy Farmworkers in New York State.” We had lots of press attending the conference and lots of people are now reading the report, sharing and taking action. Here are some pictures from the press conference. Thanks to our friend Sally Currant for sharing them with us.
