Verité works with allies to support policy and legislation that promote decent work and ensure accountability for labor abuses. Through engagement with advocacy groups such as the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST), the Child Labor Coalition (CLC), and the Tariff Act Advisory Group (TAAG), we advocate for robust funding of programs to promote labor rights, empower workers, and put an end to human trafficking and modern day slavery.
Verité is excited to launch a major new program in Mexico to promote and protect labor rights more effectively in the sugarcane sector. SENDEROS will combine intensive rights training and grievance mechanisms for workers with closely coordinated efforts with both the Mexican government and the private sector to create a new approach to labor rights enforcement in a sector that has long experienced poor working conditions.
