ANNOUNCED: ‘Behind the Braids’ truth tours, national weekend of action this fall!

As the Wendy’s Boycott swells with support from groups and individuals nationwide – including nearly 50,000 petition supporters on Change.org – farmworkers in Immokalee are ready to hit the road this fall with the truth about Wendy’s and its callous disregard for human rights!

Starting the first week of October, just as the harvest season and organizing in the farmworker community begins to pick up here in Immokalee, CIW members will join thousands of consumer allies for powerful actions, film screenings, presentations, workshops and interviews in nearly two dozen cities around the country, from the Southeast to the Midwest. To culminate the busy season of tours, the Fair Food Nation will come together for a national weekend of action just ahead of Thanksgiving, Nov. 11-13, amplifying the Wendy’s Boycott from coast to coast.

Join us this fall to demand full respect for the human rights of farmworkers in Wendy’s supply chain!

Check out the schedule and map of the six regional ‘Behind the Braids’ tours. We’ll be updating it in the coming weeks with action details in each tour stop, and adding mobilizations organized by allies for the Nov. 11-13 national weekend of action. If we’re stopping near you or you’d like to participate in the weekend of action, get in touch to coordinate bringing the Wendy’s Boycott to your campus or community!
