Get ready for Boston! Feb. 27, 2011, March to STOP SweatSHOPS
Let us know that you want a spot on the caravan from Washington, D.C. to Boston to join farmworkers from Immokalee and their allies for the CIW’s largest and most-important action ever in the Northeast!

March with farmworkers from Immokalee, their families and allies through the heart of Boston! Marchers will gather in Copley Square for a peaceful rally featuring live music and addresses from CIW members and allies, then march accompanied by colorful art and music to the Brigham Circle Stop & Shop.

Join us for the entire family-friendly march and rally, or for the culminating action at Stop & Shop!
