People’s Global Action (PGA)


More than 500 advocates, migrants, and others from around the world gathered in Mexico City for the annual People’s Global Action (PGA). The PGA forum started in 2007 as the civil society side conference to the government-only Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD). For the past six months, Global Workers’ Mexico Director, Griselda Vega has participated in the organizing committee.

Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD): Day 2

November 11-13, 2010 - Atlanta, Georgia

Farmworker Law Conference

The Bi-annual Farmworker Law Conference is a very important event for Global Workers. Organizations across the United States that represent migrant farmworkers often see their clients leave the country after filing a lawsuit. Both Cathleen Caron and Griselda Vega attended the conference. Not only because there are so many organizations they hope to collaborate with, but also because both of them worked for farmworker organizations before Global Workers, so it was a good opportunity to reconnect with old colleagues.

The first part of the day consisted of concurrent workshops on “The Rights of Migrants and the Future of Migration: The Case of Transit Migration and Border Areas”, and self-organized regional exchanges on the challenges pertinent to their respective areas.
