Mexico City, Mexico - April 26

This Friday morning brought the majority of the Jornaleros-SAFE team together in Mexico City for the project wrap-up.  Advocates from all over Mexico and the U.S. arrived to discuss highlights, lessons learned, and thoughts on the last three years. The advocates talked about the steep learning curve in becoming experts on the H-2A visa and the corresponding labor protections, but were excited to be able to share that information with their communities and become a local resource.  The group also shared their pride in the remarkable products that stemmed from the project, such as the first report of its kind documenting recruitment abuses in Mexico under the H-2A visa Jornaleros mexicanos en EU con visa: los modernos olvidados, as well as the popular educational campaign that consisted of three short documentaries and an interactive session for participants to get a sense of the abuses farmworkers face when working in the fields.  

The team joyously shared in their experiences, but also considered how to continue helping these communities now that the project is over.  A majority of the project members are also members of the Global Workers Defender Network and will continue to be supported by us, but we recognize the greater need throughout Mexico and Central America for these migrants. We will continue to strive to deliver the necessary support to the Defenders, and together provide the portable justice that these workers deserve.
