CIW SPRING ACTION: March for Rights, Respect and Fair Food (150 miles!)

March for Rights, Respect and Fair Food!

A 150 mile, 2 week march from Immokalee, FL to front steps of Publix headquarters in Lakeland, Fl

On Dec. 12th, 2012, the CIW announced that this year’s spring action will be harkening back to the epic “March for Dignity, Dialogue and a Fair Wage” that took place in February of 2000.

At the start of a New Day, with the Fair Food Program under way and several historical advances made in the agriculture industry, farmworkers still face the lack of rights and respect in the field and consumers still face the lack of right to fair food.

That is why the CIW has announced the:

March for Rights, Respect and Fair Food!

from March 3rd, 2012 – March 17th, 2013, CIW members and allies will be marching in solidarity through the state of Florida to demand a more just agriculture system and to invite Publix to take part in that change.

Yours truly, DC Fair Food, will be arranging a caravan to head down to Florida to participate in this historical march. Save the date!

This march is open to long-time CIW allies and brand new supporters. This is your chance to join the CIW family and participate in the making of history…
