This flyer promotes the urgent need for migrant workers’ rights, highlighting their disgraceful treatment by the federal government and their poor housing and working conditions, as well as their access to education, healthcare, and social services. With quotes from the New York Times and explanations of current actions, the New Jersey Conference for the Rights of Migrant Workers, chaired by Nick Kourambis, urges readers to help organize statewide and national conferences for the rights of migrant workers through involvement of trade unions, civil rights groups, churches, and other activist organizations.
