On January 16th, the Albany County Supreme Court dismissed our challenge to a Jim Crow-era state law that denies farmworkers the right to organize without fear of retaliation. As plaintiff and WCCNY organizer, Crispin Hernandez said “With the help of God and all of our supporters, we will change the conditions that we deal with as farmworkers and we will keep pushing to be treated like human beings.” According to WCCNY organizer, Rebecca, the judge’s “decision is a slap in the face for workers like Crispin Hernandez who have to live under threat and intimidation from employers and law enforcement.” Not only will we be appealing the judge’s decision, but we will continue fighting so that farmworkers will build power in the workplace and change their working and living conditions and the industry as a whole!
