The Story

EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2016

Dear friends, Students, faith groups, youth and community organizations need your help to get from Tampa Bay to Palm Beach to support the Coalition of Immokalee Worker's (CIW) 2016 Workers' Voice Tour Kick Off! Please make a tax-deductible contribution to help our group rent a bus, fill it and then march to the home of Wendy's Board Chairman Nelson Peltz to urge him to bring the final fast food holdout, Wendy's, to respect farmworker human rights by joining the Fair Food Program. Volunteers have organized buses to the action from Tampa Bay and the cost is approximately $1500. In order to accommodate everyone interested and not turn anyone down due to lack of funds, we have sliding scale registration fees for the buses. Please support our efforts and donate now! We need to show as much strength as possible so please consider joining us on the bus!!! Click below to sign up! Please support students, youth, faith groups and community organizations as they travel across the state to support Coalition of Immokalee Worker's (CIW) 2016 Workers' Voice Tour Kick Off! bit.ly/TampaBayBusRSVP We will be joining the CIW and its local allies in marching to the residence of Wendy's Board Chairman Nelson Peltz to urge him to bring the final fast food holdout, Wendy's, to respect farmworker human rights by joining the Fair Food Program. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is a worker led human rights organization. The CIW's 2016 Workers' Voice Tour will focus on the campaign calling on Wendy's to join to sign onto the Fair Food Program. Here is a link to more information: http://www.ciw-online.org/blog/2016/01/workers-voice-tour-announcement/ The Tampa Bay Caravan will kick off the tour will be a march to the home of Nelson Peltz, Wendy's Chairman of the Board. The tour is the CIW's response to Wendy's recent decisions to intentionally move tomato purchases away from Florida and its FFP-participating farms, and the corporation's recent release of an aspirational supplier Code of Conduct that excludes workers and their voices from the enforcement of worker protections in the fields.
