Farmworker Solidarity Housing Meeting 2/25

This Sunday 2/25, we are going to have a meeting with worker leaders and we would also like to invite you all to discuss and a plan an event we are doing on March 8th in honor of the International Women’s Day. We would like to do a panel with some of our amazing women worker leaders to talk about the organizing we have been doing to protect and defend immigrants and farmworkers and we specifically want to highlight just how crucial and important it has been to have Slocum House as a resource to support that organizing. We will also share some updates with you all about Slocum and the local sanctuary coalition The meeting will be from 3-5 on Sunday at the Workers’ Center and there will be food, but bring a dish if you’d like. Please email Nikeeta Slade nslade@workerscentercny.org to let me know if you are able to attend the meeting. Thanks and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Rally for Dignified Living and Working Conditions!!!

Thanks so much for the outpouring of support. We are very happy to report that many Auburn community members in general and members of the Westminster Presbyterian Church have mobilized to provide the families with housing and financial. If you would like to support the family and find out what else they need, please contact the pastor Patrick Heery at pastor@westminsterauburn.org. Thanks so much to them and to so many of you for reaching out to your networks and working quickly to help provide support and solidarity with the families.  We invite you to join us in an action tomorrow at the farm to highlight the unjust and undiginified living and housing conditions and to demand justice.
