Below is sample text that you can use to write you own:
I support the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) and its efforts to bring justice to tobacco farm workers in the fields of North Carolina and the South.Tobacco farm workers deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.Reynolds American is the largest tobacco company in North Carolina, and claims that the company has taken steps to ensure that exploitative conditions do not exist on their contract farms. However, I believe that once migrant workers have a voice in the supply chain, then their complaints about conditions can be truly addressed.I call on Reynolds American Inc. to work with FLOC to develop a written agreement establishing a process guaranteeing freedom of association and worker representation for tobacco farm workers in the Reynolds American supply chain.
I look forward to your response.
