Justice 4 Migrant Workers: Harvesting Freedom Caravan

Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program: Race and Resistance

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the migrant farm worker program in Canada. Justicia for Migrant Workers (J4MW) marks this year with the Harvesting Freedom Campaign, a call on the Canadian government to allow migrant farm workers in Canada to access Permanent Immigration Status. The Harvesting Freedom Campaign caravan consists of migrant workers and allies. It started in Leamington, Ontario on September 4th, and will reach their final stop in Ottawa on October 2nd and 3rd.

Free and open to the public.  Everyone is welcome

The Freedom Harvest Caravan is visiting Kingston and Queen’s University thanks to the generous support of PSAC 901, Cultural Studies, and SNID.
