|4/11: AgJOBS Sign on Letter Big Success! More to do
Released 13 April 2005  By Bruce Goldstein - Farmworker Justice Fund, Inc.
More than five hundred organizations signed on to a letter that is being
sent to every Senator today in support of AgJOBS. AgJOBS may come up for a
vote this week or next week as an amendment to the supplemental
appropriations bill. Thank you to all of those who helped put this
left-right letter together. It will have a big impact. To download it and
read it, go to our action alert page on our website
http://www.fwjustice.org/action_alert.htm and click to get the letter.
But our job is not over. For example, we are hearing that Sen. Byron Dorgan
(D.-N.D.) is receiving mail that is running 100 to 1 against AgJOBS. The
anti-immigrant crowd is active. We must respond. Please help us generate
calls and letters. Go to our action alert page and use the sample letters
to send faxes to Senators.
