Every year Lake Eola in Orlando hosts an Earth Day festival where lots of environmentally minded vendors come together to celebrate and honor Mother Earth. We were very pleased to participate and display the beautiful red quilt at this year’s event.
Passersby enjoyed the materials we shared and many even signed a petition to boycott Sakuma Berries (https://boycottsakumaberries.com/), because all workers deserve fair treatment and a living wage. The Sakuma Berries workers face systematic wage theft, poverty wages, hostile working conditions, and unattainable production standards. We stand in solidarity with our Brother and Sister farmworkers around the country in seeking just working conditions.
We love sharing the continuity of farmworker history and issues faced by farmworkers today.
