239-657-8311This October 27-28th, join students and young people across the country in standing with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to end sweatshops and modern-day slavery in the fields!
The Student/Farmworker Alliance calls for two days of widespread, decentralized actions on October 27-28th to show the fast-food giant that Immokalee's workers are not alone in this fight.
The time is now for students and youth – what McDonald's calls its advertising “sweet spot” – to demonstrate to McDOnald's that if it refuses to work with the CIW for real labor reform in its supply chain, we will soon become its sore spot.
