CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES!
Tell them to grant the hunger strikers continued presence status, which is commonly granted to victims of human trafficking.
Tell them to join Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, and open an investigation into this and other claims of H2B visa human trafficking.
It only takes a few minutes of your time. These courageous workers have been striking for 17 days now!
