CANCELLED!! Joe, You’re Breakin’ My Heart: Petition Delivery to TJ’s Feb. 12 @12pm

UPDATE:

In light of the agreement between Trader Joe’s and the CIW, the Sunday petition delivery to Trader Joe’s is cancelled.

ONWARD TO PUBLIX…

Instead, come celebrate with us Saturday night, and participate in the e-action at the party to tell Publix it’s time to follow suit!

What!

broken heartJoin D.C. Fair Food in a visit to our local Trader Joe’s to deliver our petition and messages of heart break (and break up!) over their refusal to sign an agreement with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers.

It’s been too long, Joe! You promised me ethical food and a bond of trust. It turns out our values just don’t align, Joe… I’m sorry, but it’s over.

Where!

Greetings from D.C. Fair Food! We are a local network of allies and advocates that organize in solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), through working on a shared Campaign for Fair Food. The CIW is a community-based organization of mainly Latino, Mayan Indian and Haitian immigrants working in low-wage jobs throughout the state of Florida. The CIW, with the support of ally groups like D.C. Fair Food, has taken on some of the biggest fast food conglomerates in the world, securing agreements with nine corporations to ensure an end to human rights abuses and poverty wages for farmworkers. The CIW has aided the Department of Justice in successfully prosecuting seven slavery operations, resulting in the liberation of well over 1,000 workers.
