NMWIG Facebook Page Now Active

Alongside this blog, management of the NMWIG Facebook page has changed and will now be far more active than ever before. We hope to use both the blog and the Facebook page to reach as many people as possible; migrant workers and supporters alike. Like and follow our pages to stay informed about news, upcoming events, and more! 

Bicycle Donation Drive Update

In the flurry of our servers being down, it seems we uploaded last year's flyer for the Bicycle Donation Drive. For clarification, all of the information is still the same - only the year is wrong.

We are looking to collect as many bikes as possible so spread the word!

Bicycle Donation Drive

If you or you know someone who has a bike they no longer use or need, allow us to take it off your hands!

Please forgive us for the lag time between posts! Summer is such a busy time with events and initiatives that we can easily get caught up in the "doing" rather than the posting about doing! So more updates coming!

The June 7th  Summer Festival and Info Fair for Migrant Workers was a huge success and a great day for all. 400 farm workers and community members participated in the event and a great time was had by all! Stay tuned for next year's event; something new and exciting in the works!

Farm Workers Awareness Part 2


Onto the second part of the mini-blog posts regarding Farm Worker's Awareness. The article for this post focuses on the injustices that farm workers face when they report injuries or injustices (ie working too many hours, unsafe work conditions, lack of protective equipment or abuse from employers) and the activism that has risen from people moving to protect migrant workers. Normally, workers are limited in the type of help they can receive and often their concerns are pushed to their side. This article aims to highlight the reactions workers have received by reporting and some efforts that aim to help workers receive help.

Happy Reading everyone!
