REPORT BACK – Boycott Wendy’s Action

REPORT BACK

Boycott Wendy’s Action in Washington DC

After April’s Student/Farmworker Alliance Month of Outrage came to a close, DC Fair Food took to the streets to show Wendy’s that we won’t let them get away with farmworker exploitation!

In the early afternoon of Sunday May 15th, we marched from the Georgia Ave metro to say: “Enough is enough! Wendy’s we’re boycotting you until you join the CIW’s Fair Food Program!” We brought a mighty group of 30+ consumer allies including students, teachers and representatives from USAS, Fair Trade, Act TV and allies from Boston and Pennsylvania. We picketed in front of the store and talked to customers about why we’re boycotting Wendy’s. And, many thanks to our friend Koji who kept us in good spirits with his music!

WHY ARE WE BOYCOTTING WENDY’S?
For over three years, farmworkers, students and communities across the country have been demanding that Wendy’s join its major competitors – Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Subway and Burger King – in participating in the Fair Food Program. Yet, Wendy’s has instead consciously and shamefully opted to profit from farmworker poverty and abuse. Learn more about the Wendy’s boycott and how you can take action by visiting: boycott-wendys.org
