New York Taxi Workers Alliance and Law@theMargins welcomes Coalition of Immokalee Workers for a discussion of their award-winning worker-driven social responsibility model to protect the human rights of farmworkers in the fields, the Fair Food Program, and to learn about their current “Harvest without Violence” campaign to end sexual violence in Wendy’s supply chain.
Monday, November 13 at 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
New York Taxi Workers Alliance, 31-10 37th Avenue, Suite #300, LIC, NY 11101
The CIW’s presentation will be followed by a worker dialogue with the New York Taxi Workers Alliance. RSVP
The CIW will be in NYC in November ahead of a major march to the offices of Wendy’s Board Chairman and major shareholder, Nelson Peltz, on Monday Nov. 20 at 5:30pm starting at the Wendy’s at 714 3rd Ave.

Wendy’s is the only major fast food chain that still refuses to join the Fair Food Program. Instead of joining, the company shifted its tomato purchases away from Fair Food Program farms in Florida to Mexico, where sexual violence and other human rights abuses are endemic and go unchecked.
