One month from today, a bus of farmworkers from Immokalee and their allies will be embarking on a 2,000-mile trek through more than a dozen U.S. cities for the monumental Return to Human Rights Tour. The CIW is ready to share its signature energy and message of hope and resilience with thousands of students, people of faith and community allies who will meet them in unstoppable action to advance the national Wendy's Boycott along every stop of the way.
If we are to keep building a broad and inclusive movement to protect the fundamental human rights of farmworkers, and of all people at the center of struggles for justice, this kind of long-lasting vision and persistence will be needed to pull us through this uncertain moment, and to bring Wendy's into the Fair Food Program.
So, if you're ready to join the CIW from March 24-26 for the tour's culminating weekend of action — featuring a powerful vigil outside of Wendy's headquarters in Dublin, OH, an unforgettable World Café-style gathering at The Ohio State University and a tremendous, lively Parade for Human Rights through the streets of downtown Columbus — reserve your spot on a bus or caravan today!
Check out the most updated list of buses and caravans leaving from DC, Boston, Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Sarasota and many more cities over at theWendy’s Boycott website!
Don’t see your city? Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to start coordinating your own caravan.
And if you're in Florida, make plans to join hundreds of farmworkers and allies for the tour's grand finale: a march and vigil for human rights in Tampa, FL, on March 29! We will finalize the tour calling on both Wendy's and Publix Supermarkets to ensure dignity and respect for farmworkers in their supply chains by joining the Fair Food Program.
See you soon!
