As thousands of people across the country gear up to take action with dozens of farmworkers on CIW’s 14-day, 12-city Return to Human Rights Tour — including the major mobilization in Columbus from March 24-26 — join SFA for a national call-in day to Wendy’s corporate headquarters. We’re giving Wendy's CEO Todd Penegor a ring on Feb. 1 to give fair warning that SFAers nationwide are boycotting and mobilizing in full force to demand justice, dignity and respect for farmworkers!
Check out the call script below, and be sure to fill out the form after your call to let us know how it goes. Let’s make sure Mr. Penegor gets the message loud and clear that if Wendy’s doesn't join the Fair Food Program before March rolls around, we’ll be bringing our friends, classmates and communities to participate in a massive, visible and powerful action in the heart of Wendy’s territory in Columbus, OH!
Call-in day: February 1, 2017
Call-in number: 614-764-3100, dial #3 and ask to leave a message for Wendy’s CEO Todd Penegor (and they will transfer you to his assistant, Lisa Spears)
Sample script: “Hi, my name is _______ and I’m calling to leave a message for Mr. Todd Penegor in support of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. The CIW is a human rights organization that's calling on Wendy’s to end exploitation in their supply chain by joining the internationally-recognized Fair Food Program. I am currently participating in the national boycott of Wendy's because of your company's ongoing failure to make a commitment to human rights. If Wendy's doesn't join the Fair Food Program by March, I will be attending a massive, farmworker-led mobilization from March 24-26 in Dublin and Columbus, and I’ll be bringing my community, too! Thank you for relaying this message.”
