In Honduras, defending your rights at work can cost you your life. This event will highlight how workers in Honduras are standing up to corporations that exploit, harm and impoverish people in the name of profit. We will examine U.S. policy, violence against worker rights activists, and the root causes of the current migration crisis. Meet Honduran trade unionist, Tomas Membreño, and learn how people in the U.S. can support Honduran workers who harvest the fruit that ends up on our supermarket shelves.
