We support El Movimiento Cosecha’s goals and strategy. Cosecha is a nonviolent movement that is demanding dignity, respect and permanent protection for all immigrants in the U.S., especially the 11 million undocumented immigrants. Through boycotts and strikes, Cosecha is building the resistance that will dramatically shift the public opinion around immigration in this country. We are going to make it clear that this country cannot function without immigrants.
