Locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers are asking for your help. Union members want supporters join them on a trek from Drayton to Moorhead.

The Caravan starts Thursday at City Park in Drayton. It will stop through Grafton, Oslo, East Grand Forks, Crookston, Belmont Park and Hillsboro along the way -- before ending near the American Crystal Sugar Headquarters in Moorhead.

Union members encourage people to an walk, bike or skate along with them. Members say participants can expect more than just a walk across the state.

Mel Morris, locked-out worker, says, "Invite the community, any farmers even that want to come out and talk to us are more than welcome to come to the campground. We're going to have food and maybe a little music... just some good conversation."

The caravan ends up in Moorhead on Wednesday, June 6th.
