I am withdrawing from my computer screen addiction and riding my bike to support Migrant Justice and VWC. Please sponsor me!
Dear friends and family:
Hope this summer is treating you well! On August 5th I am getting off my computer addiction to go on a beautiful 30 mile bike ride to raise some dough for my biggest passion, Migrant Justice, and I am writing to ask for your support!
Even though my bike was stolen last week :( (booo to thieves) I will find a way to join the ride and break a sweat!
Why am I doing this? Because Migrant Justice is building the voice and power of the migrant farmworker community like no other. Through our farmworker assemblies, migrant workers are leaving the shadows to speak up and fight for their rights, developing groundbreaking campaigns that have already resulted in a policy to stop police from racial profiling, a legislative study for drivers licenses so that folks may stop feeling like prisoners at the farm, and we are now launching a food justice campaign to build truly sustainable farming and food systems that protect the human rights of everyone, from farm to plate.
Personally, Migrant Justice has given me the chance to explore all my abilities and lead systemic change in Vermont, and I want to continue to grow with this amazing organization!
To combine fun and fitness with fundraising, I am joining the Ride for Rights, a 30 mile bike ride from Burlignton to Charlotte to raise awareness and build support for Migrant Justice. My goal is to raise $40 per mile I ride, for a total of $1200. Can you please sponsor 1, 2, 3 or more miles for my ride? Whatever amount you can share can greatly help me reach my goal!!

Thank you so much for your generosity. And if you can, please join me in the Ride for Rights and help raise this money we need to continue our important work!
