Join us to flyer in front of the Union to tell Wendy's we’re more than just a profitable demographic, and until you make a real, verifiable commitment to protect the dignity and safety of farmworker women, you will fail to make the grade with our generation! Join Fair Food Allies across the country in calling out Wendy’s abject failure to support farmworker women in the fight to end gender-based violence in its supply chain, and in condemning universities, such as The Ohio State University, for bypassing the call to “Boot the Braids” and instead doing business with a company that chooses violence and impunity over human rights. ________________________________________ Following the CIW Women’s Group’s breaking announcement this week of their new “Harvest without Violence” campaign, which calls for an end to sexual violence in Wendy’s supply chain, students and youth across the country are making moves to show up by the hundreds in solidarity with farmworker women. On October 21, the CIW Women’s Group will hit the road for Wendy’s hometown of Columbus, OH, to exhibit the brand-new Harvest without Violence Mobile Exhibit, an interactive educational tool that exposes the brutal reality of sexual violence in agriculture — including in Mexico’s tomato industry, where abuse is met with impunity — and lifts up the Fair Food Program as a proven model for real and lasting change for farmworker women. That very same day in October, SFA will kick off a week of coordinated solidarity actions to demand that Wendy’s top executives commit to protecting the rights of farmworker women by joining the Program. https://www.facebook.com/events/128938464430327/
