rain or shine, DCFF + allies celebrate D.C. Emancipation Day with a Giant picket!

In spite of inclement weather, D.C. Fair Food joined up with Power Shift allies today to ask Giant Food — and its parent company, Ahold USA — to join the Campaign for Fair Food! On April 16 in 1862, President Lincoln emancipated the slaves of Washington, D.C. Today, we commemorated this momentous decision to reject the notion that labor exploitation, especially in agricultural industries, is an acceptable building block of our food system. In order to build this re-visioning of the country, there is much more work to be done!

Keep an eye out for an action video from today and for the upcoming post card action across the country!
