We at Toxic Free NC believe that people who work hard should be treated fairly. Everyone deserves safe working conditions, no matter their occupation.
However, in North Carolina, the people doing some of the hardest and most important work are most at risk because our laws don’t protect them like other workers.
In November, the Farmworker Advocacy Network, of which Toxic Free NC is a member, launched Harvest of Dignity, an important campaign to improve the lives of field and poultry workers in North Carolina. We’ll be working together to win safer places to work and live, and better enforcement of existing laws intended to protect the safety of field and poultry workers and their families.
It's time for a Harvest of Dignity! Read about how you can help us win safer working and living conditions for the people who put food on our tables. Then go to www.harvestofdignity.org for more ways you can be involved in the Harvest.
