Call to Action from 2021: Oppose the Farm Workforce Modernization Act

Community to Community and many other farmworker justice organizations are in firm opposition to the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, and we stand with them! This bill, disguised as a “path to citizenship”for farmworkers, would expand the exploitive H-2A guestworker program and establish the E-Verify system for the surveillance of workers’ documentation-status. ALL farmworkers deserve the right to citizenship, protection, dignity, human rights, and food sovereignty– and a long path to citizenship with many strings attached and that only applies to some workers will never be the answer.

Here is an excerpt from the C2C facebook page: “C2C OPPOSES the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (HR-1603) – even the name is bad. We support comprehensive immigration reform that keeps families together and provides real opportunity for a better life. This bill does not – call your Congressional representatives and stop this bill from moving forward to the US Senate! Demand legalization for farmworkers now – not after years of indentured servitude to agricultural corporations.”
