Qatar 2022 is over, now on to North America 2026
Now that this year’s FIFA World Cup is behind us (Congratulations, Argentina!), all eyes are on Mexico, United States and Canada who will co-host the mega-event in 2026. And after the infamous treatment of migrant workers in Qatar, we must ensure that next time human rights will be protected.
Today, as we celebrate International Migrant’s Day, CDM’s Campaigns Director, Evy Peña published an op-ed in Reforma, a leading newspaper in Mexico, to call on FIFA, host cities and nations, to make human rights a priority and to implement sound human rights plans that take into account the voices of civil society and low-wage workers who work in World Cup related industries.
We have a unique opportunity to work together in raising global labor standards across sectors and across nations. But we have our work cut out for us. If we hope to succeed, the work can’t start four years from now. It has to start today.
Will you join us in ensuring migrant worker rights are protected in the 2026 World Cup?
