Please support students, youth, faith groups and community organizations as they travel from Long Island and Westchester to NYC For the CIW's 2016 Worker's Voice Tour Kick Off!
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a worker led human rights organization. The CIW's Spring Action is a tour focusing on the campaign against Wendy's, inviting Wendy's to join to sign the Fair Food Agreement program. The NYC action will focus on Nelson Peltz, Wendy's Chairman of the Board and principal of the company's largest stockholder, Trian Partners. 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.

We will be organizing buses to the action from Long Island and Westchester at an approximate cost of $3000. 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!
