On February 19, 2019, after five months of struggle we finally obtained 15 Open Work Permits for our Guatemalan sisters!
This victory would not have been possible without the help of our donors, volunteers, the Dignidad team, and the amazing people from Vancouver that contributed in the tamales sales, clothing donations, information sharing, and expressing your solidarity in many ways.
To all of you,
Dignidad Migrante is a non-profit organization of Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs), who year after year come to work legally in Canada from Mexico, Guatemala, the Philippines, and numerous other countries in Europe, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.
To promote the self-organization of temporary foreign workers in general and of agricultural workers in particular; to ensure access to our rights, and to solve our daily problems during our stay in Canada.
We strive to be a place where the voice of each worker counts, and where workers from many communities can coexist. We hope to build an organization where we walk together with affection, respect, joy, humour, and self-criticism.
