THE STORY:

On March 12th, 2013, I will flying to Florida to join hundreds, if not thousands, of farmworkers and their allies to march the second half of a 200+ mile march for "Rights, Respect and Fair Food." The Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a world-renound organization of community organizers/farmworkers based in southwest Florida, will be marching from Ft. Meyers to Lakeland, Florida - the hometown of Publix. For those of you who do not know, Publix is Florida's biggest supermarket chain, and has been resisting joining the CIW's Fair Food Program to provide fair wages and dignity for the farmworkers who pick their tomatoes (check out www.ciw-online.org for more info). I have been absolutely blessed be an ally to the Coalition of Immokalee Workers for the past 4 years organizing actions, participating in strategy retreats and national mobilizations such as this one, and writing/performing songs for the movement. I hope to be able to afford to join my community for this historic march, with guitar in hand, of course! Anything you can give to help me with my flight out to Florida would be much appreciated : )
