FIGHTING
THE GOOD FIGHT.

We're at the forefront of grassroots activism, making strides both within our home state of Arkansas and across the country. Our commitment? To mobilize and organize for change, in and out of the workplace. Our efforts have caught the attention of national media powerhouses like The Guardian, The New York Times, and Vox Media, where our stories and perspectives have been shared with a wide audience.

Collaborative Efforts

In a collaborative effort with the Food Chain Workers Alliance and HEAL Food Alliance, we've played a pivotal role in shaping the Protecting America’s Meatpacking Workers Act. This legislation, championed by Senator Cory Booker and Representative Ro Khanna, is a beacon of hope for meat and poultry workers, primarily from communities of color, who face exploitation in the industry. Our goal is clear: to secure essential protections for these workers, ensuring their safety and dignity.

TAKING A
STAND.

We've also taken a stand against misleading labor practices in the industry, filing complaints with the Federal Trade Commission and collaborating on investigations and reports that highlight the need for systemic change. Our involvement in a congressional investigation into COVID-19's impact on meat processing workers underlines our commitment to holding companies accountable and advocating for the health and safety of workers.

Exchanging 
Ideas

Our work extends beyond legislative efforts. We've journeyed to Immokalee, Florida, alongside workers and their families, to exchange ideas and strategies with organizations like the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and Migrant Justice. Since opening our Springdale, AR office in 2022, we've been tirelessly advocating for workplace justice, educating workers on their rights, and organizing actions to challenge injustices head-on.

During The
Pandemic

During the pandemic, our resolve only strengthened. We launched a successful online campaign demanding paid sick leave from major poultry companies, gathering over 50,000 signatures. Our rallies and caravans outside company plants have been pivotal in pushing for necessary protections for workers, demonstrating our community's unity and determination. We've also taken a stand against misleading labor practices in the industry, filing complaints with the Federal Trade Commission and collaborating on investigations and reports that highlight the need for systemic change.

At Venceremos, we're more than an organization; we're a movement. We believe in a future where the food system is just, equitable, and resilient, where workers' rights are not just recognized but protected and celebrated. We invite you to join us in this journey towards a better tomorrow for all workers.
