Farm Workers fast and march in their "Boot the Braids" campaign against fast-food giant Wendy's to stop sexual violence in the fields
with
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers and allies

For years, farmworkers with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers & their allies have called on Wendys to join all of its major competitors in the Fair Food program, a uniquely successful approach to eliminate human rights abuses in the agricultural industry. Instead of joining the Program, Wendys has taken its tomato purchases to Mexico, where workers continue to confront wage theft, gender-based violence, child labor, and even slavery without access to protections. Now tens of thousands strong, and endorsed by over a hundred organizations the CIW is asking you to join a boycott against Wendy's, until it does the right thing.

The struggle against poverty and for freedom must be led from the ground up.
The farmworkers of the CIW have been some of our bravest leaders these many years.Building Bridges brings you voices of the shero farm workers who have been Fasting for Freedom because they believe we need a fundamental shift in our nations moral narrative which places the lives of workers and the dispossessed at the center. The CIWs Fair Food Program has given workers a real voice in the decisions that affect their lives. And, with that voice they are transforming the agricultural industry where they work " eliminating slavery, violence, and sexual harassment in fields " where these abuses have persisted for generations. But, the fast food giant Wendy's has refused to support the Fair Food Program " and worse yet, it abandons growers who are doing the right thing to instead buy from an industry in Mexico " where they know sexual assault to slavery continue to thrive with impunity " is the very definition of amoral and unacceptable.
