CDM is using the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) as a mechanism to fight for migrant justice.
In March 2021 we supported two migrant women, Maritza Perez and Adareli Ponce, in submitting the first-ever petition against the U.S. under USMCA. This petition was signed by a binational coalition of allies led by CDM.
Together, we’re arguing that the U.S. government failed to live up to its obligations under the trade agreement by allowing systemic gender-based discrimination against migrant worker women.
