Boycott against Driscoll's // Bay Area tour

 

About:

Familias Unidas por la Justicia (Families United for Justice)is organizing a month long west coast tour during the spring of 2016 to strengthen the boycott of Driscoll’s berrries and build connections and solidarity with other movement organizations ghting to change the food system.

Familias Unidas por la Justicia (FUJ) is an independent farmworker union that has been waging a historic struggle for the last three years for just working conditions through a union contract at Sakuma bros berry farm in Burlington, Washington. They have been calling for a boycott of both Sakuma and Driscoll’s berries (the worlds biggest berry distributor who sells Sakuma berries) until their employer meets their demands.
