About
Meatless in Solidarity

Background

COVID-19 in the State of Iowa is exposing the vulnerability of our farm system and the exploitation of meatpacking workers.  

With OSHA nowhere to be found and inaction by the State of Iowa the League of United Latin American Citizens of Iowa (LULAC Iowa) is forming a statewide coalition of farmers, activists, workers, consumers, unions, environmentalists, and other organizations to launch the Meatless May Campaign with short and long term goals to protect workers and support family farms.

To start the campaign our first call to action is to take the pledge to boycott corporate meat and support regional and local farmers.  Take the pledge!
