Help Protect Florida’s Outdoor Workers Now

Join the Farmworker Association of Florida, South Florida Interfaith Worker Justice, and WeCount! as we launch a statewide heat stress campaign to tell our state law makers to pass heat stress protections for all of Florida’s vulnerable outdoor workers! Join the campaign by signing on to this letter.

Florida works, because people work! And, workers in the Sunshine State are at growing risk from rising temperatures as a result of global warming. Our state’s economy depends on the work of agricultural laborers, who harvest the food that feeds us, and construction workers, roofers and others who build our homes, our cities, and our roads and highways.

Please join other organizations – including the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy, Organize Florida, Miami Workers Center, Food and Water Watch, SEIU 1199, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Latino Justice, Farmworker Self-Help, Agricultural Justice Project and more! – and join the campaign by signing on to this letter.
Add your organization to our sign on letter, and let’s show the broad coalition of groups that are saying “Yes! We want heat stress protections now!”  Deadline for sign-ons is March 8th
