CIW Solidarity Action Outside Wendy's - 14 Febraury 2013


We're kicking off the season with a big Valentine’s Day proposal (and Valentine's Day themed action!) to Wendy’s to sign a Fair Food Agreement with the CIW. Throughout the week of Valentine’s Day, allies of farmworkers all over the country will call on Wendy’s to partner with the CIW.

On Thursday, February 14 @5pm, we will gather outside the Wendy’s on 1711 North Main Street in Gainesville to call on Wendy’s to join CIW's Fair Food Program.

By joining the program, Wendy's would commit to buying Florida tomatoes only from growers that respect farmworkers' basic rights. 

Join us to send a strong message to the company here in Gainesville!
