Friday, Sept. 29th 7pm
This Friday at 7pm, WCCNY will be having our monthly membership meeting. These meetings are important so that members and leaders can stay plugged into the organization, get updates on the Green Light Campaign, the dairy farmworker advocacy and organizing, get important trainings, etc. We need your help to make sure that members are able to fully participate in this meeting! A few workers from Skaneateles (about 30 minutes away) will need rides to the meeting. Please email Nikeeta at email@example.com if you are able to help with rides! We thank you in advance!
