Tour of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’s “Harvest without Violence” Mobile Exhibit

Nov 9, 2017 - Nov 20, 2017

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York, New York

Saturday, November 12 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Gathering at 1:00 PM, with tour beginning at 1:30 PM.

Join farmworker leaders with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers for a tour of the “Harvest without Violence” mobile exhibit. This is an interactive display describing conditions in the fields for farmworker women in U.S. and Mexican agriculture, and the ways in which the CIW’s  Presidential Medal-winning worker-driven social responsibility model, the Fair Food Program, protects the human rights of farmworkers and puts an end to abuse in seven states along the East Coast. Most recently, a CIW co-founder received a 2017 MacArthur “genius” grant to promote this innovative initiative to bring human rights to the fields.  Farmworkers will invite members to participate in their campaign to end sexual violence in Wendy’s supply chain,  including an upcoming march in Manhattan on Monday, Nov. 20 at 5:30 pm to the offices of the fast-food chain’s Board Chair, Nelson Peltz. Wendy’s is the only major fast-food chain that still refuses to join the Fair Food Program. Come learn more about how you can join with farmworkers to build a more just and dignified agricultural industry!
