Dear Friends, Family and Supporters,
This October I'll be running a 5K in the Baltimore Running Festival in support of CDM's Proyecto de Mujeres Migrantes and the women migrant workers right here in Maryland.
Each year, thousands of women who come to the U.S. on guestworker visas face workplace abuses, gender discrimination and wage theft. In 2010, CDM published Picked Apart: The Hidden Struggles of Migrant Worker Women in the Maryland Crab Industry, sharing the stories of women who pick the crabs on the Eastern Shore and the exploitation they encounter. I encourage you to read the report, and I ask you to support us in our campaign to defend workers' rights, especially those of women migrants.
My fundraising goal is $250. Can you help me reach that goal? You can run (or walk...or jog...) with us by registering for the race here or support us by donating whatever you are able. I appreciate anything you can give or any way you can show your support for CDM and for women migrant workers.
Thanks! I'll see you at the starting line!
