FarmWorker Union Needs Office Space

Support the Northwest’s only indigenous led farm worker union, Familias Unidas por la Justicia (FUJ)! This independent farmworker union is based in Skagit Valley with over 400 members who are excited to move justice forward in the fields through continued organizing.

For the last several years many people of all ages from all over the country have been supporting FUJ and have joined us with solidarity taking many forms, including time on consumer educational picket lines, educating friends and family about farm worker issues, and financially supporting the union! That solidarity has been indispensable to this historic movement!

As FUJ prepares for their first picking season under a union contract they are looking to set up their administrative office with a space for members to access needed union services.

FUJ is working hard to raise $5,000 dollars to lease an office space before September 1st.

Familias Unidas’s historic union election victory this summer was a huge step forward for local farmworker organizing, and a major inspiration to all of us who are working to build a better world! Please donate today so they can become firmly rooted and continue to lead the movement forward for economic justice for farmworker families in Whatcom and Skagit Counties!

Your donation will be appreciated by the Farm Workers, their children, community members, and many organizations that have worked hard to secure a just future for the 'People Who Pick Your Produce.'
