Berry Boycott in Effect as of January
“Bellingham, WA – A local boycott committee led by WWU Students for Farmworker Justice has garnered several wins for Familias Unidas por la Justicia. Back in September the committee convinced the owner of a local grocery store, TERRA, to stop selling Driscoll’s label berries. Just over one year after authorization the boycott one of Sakuma Bros. most lucrative contracts, Driscoll’s, has come to feel the financial impact of the growing berry boycott.”

There is a long history of abuses being committed against migrant and undocumented workers throughout Skagit and Whatcom counties, and across much of the State (and indeed the whole country). Stand in solidarity with these brave workers fighting to feed their families and feed us all! Join the berry boycott! Buy no berries from now until further notice.
