Ramon Torres and Lazaro Matamoros of Familias Unidas por la Justicia invite Santa Cruz County residents to attend the Driscoll’s Headquarters Action and join the international boycott of Driscoll’s called for by Familias Unidas of Washington and unionized workers in San Quintin, Mexico.

Familias Unidas in Burlington, WA and La Alianza in San Quintin, Mexico are each organizing grassroots power to build a berry boycott on the scale of the Cesar Chavez grape boycott. They are taking on a large corporate agriculture industry, intending to win union contracts for berry pickers fighting for farmworker rights.
