Advancing the Rights of Farmworkers Within a Sustainable Dairy Industry

The Milk with Dignity Program ensures the rights of dairy farmworkers through worker-driven social responsibility model. Last fall, community-based organization Migrant Justice signed an historic agreement with Ben & Jerry’s to implement the Milk with Dignity Program on dairy farms in the company’s supply chain. In 2018, the program has rolled out on over 70 dairy farms. This workshop will explain how the program works and update participants on the progress made so far.
