Hey Fair Foodies!
I wanted to pass along a timely request to all you active Fair Food social media mavens! Join us in responding to Publix’s new CEO change (and all their social media buzz around it) with an urgent call for Publix to also change the way they’re treating farmworkers and finally join the Fair Food Program.
It was officially Ed Crenshaw’s last day as Publix CEO yesterday… and so as the new CEO Todd Jones is ushered in let’s make the call loud and clear: It’s a new day for farmworkers’ and it’s about time Publix does they’re part to support human rights for the workers that make their profits possible.
.@Publix, as your CEO changes, change your position on farmworkers’ #humanrights and join @ciw’s @FairFoodProgram!

Catch y’all on social media!
En la lucha,

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.
