On eve of ten-day tour, Immokalee community gets ready to embark on journey to Wendy's, Publix HQ's
Tomorrow, farmworkers in Immokalee will gather at the CIW's community center in the predawn hours, preparing to depart on a 10-day journey that will take them to the frozen reaches of the Fair Food Nation and back.
Allies, too, are mobilizing. In the ten cities preparing to welcome the CIW, groundwork is being laid for community events, actions, and meals. In the dozens of cities getting ready to caravan, last minute funds are being raised and registrations are being rounded out.
In short, the undertaking is vast, especially for a coalition of community-based organizations. Planning a multi-city tour requires not only time, but also money; and for that we're counting on your support.
Just to give you some idea:
Solidarity comes in many forms. Whether you support on the ground or in spirit, you're a part of building a new day of justice and dignity in the fields!
Stay tuned for updates as we hit the road,
