Hands That Speak

Voices from the upper valley dairy farms

«María Clara De Greiff, Colombian-Mexican journalist and communicator, now a Spanish professor at Dartmouth College and co-founder of FUERZA Farmworkers’ Fund, gave herself over to the work of traversing the farms of the Upper Valley. There, hundreds of men and women from Mexico and Central America work tirelessly, contributing to the economic growth of the state of Vermont and that of the United States.

Hands that Speak contains the testimonies of those who, day by day, give their souls out of love for their families, proud and responsible Mexican men and women who remind us of a pending debt: that we cannot allow great men and women to flee their homeland because there aren’t sufficient conditions for a life with dignity.»
