TAKE ACTION

CATA’s is creating lasting change in farm and migrant workers' living and working conditions. Will you join us?

 

We are improving workers and immigrant rights and promoting food Justice in Maryland, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. We work with volunteers, and donors, providing a platform for you to make a more significant, more profound difference. Join us today. Change doesn’t happen without you.

CATA's Activism Group

If you are a member of CATA or part of the immigrant community in South Jersey and want to help immigrants and farmworkers have better living and working conditions, fair wages, and be treated with respect and dignity, this group is for you!  We meet once a month virtually, and you can join us using your computer or phone.

For more information, call 856-213-2979, and we will give you the Zoom Meeting ID. You can join from your computer or phone! We meet once a month on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. Next meeting is on May 12th.

In this meeting, there will be room to share ideas, coordinate communications with legislators, learn how to motivate other people to be part of our cause, and formulate action plans. People interested in this group must commit to attending once a month and actively participate during the meeting.

Join our Food Justice Commitee

This Committee is open to CATA members and the immigrant community interested in changing our current food system. 

Our Food Justice program is focused on growing food with sustainable methods that do not rely on pesticides, genetically modified seeds, or machinery that harms our Mother Earth. We meet once a month virtually, and you can join us using your computer or phone. Next meeting is on Wednesday, April 28. This month we will be talking about the differences between industrial agriculture and more sustainable methods.

 

Participants can join the community gardens, learn how to be part of a larger movement to change our broken food system, learn about agroecological practices and/or share wisdom about growing food and herbal medicine. For more information, call 609-271-8578. or email kramirez@cata-farmworkers.org 

Driving Pennsylvania Forward!

On February, the Driving PA Forward Coalition announced our bill's re-introduction to expand access to driver's licenses to immigrants in Pennsylvania! It was streamed online and can still be seen on Facebook!

The bill - HB 279 - already has 37 co-sponsors! If you live in Pennsylvania, you can check here to see if your representative is supporting!

Now, the coalition is working to move LOTS of calls to our state representatives and handwritten letters! Do you want to support this effort? Please get in touch with Nancy Lopez Sosa at nlopezsosa@cata-farmworkers.org.

We have also launched a fundraising effort for the coalition! If you want to help us towards our goal of raising $25,000 - check out our collective fundraiser!

Take action to create a #NewJerseyForAll by emailing your legislators now

The Fair and Welcoming Platform will:

  • Ban new ICE detention contracts including renewals or expansions.

  • Make schools, hospitals, and courthouses safer and make data more secure by updating confidentiality policies and restricting what can be shared with immigration authorities.

  • Closes law enforcement loopholes that entrap immigrant communities by strengthening the Immigrant Trust Directive and making it permanent.

  • Remove harmful terms like "alien" from state language so that laws affirm our right to belonging and inclusion
