Education for Action: Student Berry Boycott Organizer Celebrates Farmworker Victory

When workers at a Washington State berry farm went on strike for their right to form a union, University of Washington alumna Jessica Ramirez joined the fight alongside Familias Unidas por la Justicia, coordinating a national boycott against the largest berry company in the world.

Jessica’s work was supported by the UW Center for Human Rights’ unique Osheroff-Clark Fund, which provides financial resources for undergraduate and graduate students to support human rights projects that promote social change through direct action.
