Cosecha is a nonviolent movement working to win permanent protection, dignity and respect for the 11 million undocumented people in this country.
We are fighting for dignity.
Our campaigns aim to bring our community from a place of fear and individual fights to determination and collective resistance. We defend our communities by supporting rapid response and worker protection teams. We show our power through offensive campaigns centered on boycotts and strikes. We are building towards A Day Without Immigrants - Un Día Sin Inmigrantes on May 1st, which is shaping up to be the largest immigrant-led strike since the Mega Marches of 2006. We will run boycott campaigns after May 1st to target employers that retaliate against striking workers.
We are making headlines.
"More than 100 people danced into the stores, swinging their hips to pulsing Latino music, in the protest organized by Cosecha, an immigrants rights group. The stores were chosen because many immigrants shop at them, organizers said. “What we’re doing here is we’re showing . . . there’s not a business or a space that can’t survive without immigrants,” said Rodrigo Saavedra of East Boston, speaking into a microphone as dancers gathered outside TJ Maxx on Washington Street."
We are organizing a week without immigrants.
We are building toward massive civil resistance and non-cooperation to show our country it depends on us.
We need you to join the movement.
Cosecha is a movement run, organized and sustained by our communities. We need people with all kinds of skills from communications to graphic design, website development, video production, photography, business management, and fundraising. We also need people who can step in to take on smaller roles on our various teams and use the opportunity to learn something new. There are a million ways for all of us to contribute to the movement and we hope you choose to get involved.
