Thanks to the CVRAN volunteers, Christ Episcopal Church in Montpelier, and the other community participants, for making another successful visit from the Mexican Consulate possible last month.

Many Mexican farm workers in Vermont are often unable to make the trip to Boston for consular services. So, the Consulate goes mobile, and arrives with their computers in Vermont, where the farm workers can get easier access to passports, ID cards, and citizenship papers for their kids.

CVRAN hosts the event, arranging for space, food and community services. Among the community services were: UVM Extension Bridges to Health, Vermont Asylum Assistance Project, Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (tax assistance), Vermont Department of Health, Migrant Justice/Justicia Migrante, and National Domestic Workers Alliance.
