Info about the raffle: Currently, hundreds of thousands of female workers in Colombia, Ecuador and Kenya, many of whom are mothers, are working to grow, harvest, and package the roses and carnations sold in the United States. These working women face serious labor rights violations such as salaries below minimum wage, arbitrary pregnancy dismissal, sexual harassment, lack of protection against hazardous pesticide and intimidation for joining unions to improve their conditions. Proceeds of the raffle will benefit ILRF's Fairness in Flowers Campaign, which works to address these problems and promote better and safer conditions for workers in the cut flower industry.
