The Coalition of Immokalee Workers and Student Farmworker Alliance work together to bring food giants like McDonalds and Taco Bell to the table. Once they get them there, their goal is for these multi-national corporations to acknowledge and change the awful conditions faced by the farmworkers bringing tomatoes to Big Macs around the world.

Their success is inspiring. For example, last November they organized over 1500 people to march 9 miles to the Burger King HQ where they demanded that the corporation take responsibility for the human rights abuses and poverty inflicted by their business

Now they need our help. Burger King is being difficult. They don’t want to publicly accept that the supply chain initiated by their sourcing practices ends with degrading working conditions and sub-poverty wages.

CIW and SFA have launched a petition to stop slavery and sweatshops in the fields. Sign it. Circulate it. Help support the FAIR in good, clean, and fair.
