Return to Human Rights Tour passes 1,000 mile mark, connects with worker leaders from Nashville to Minneapolis!

Following the tour’s inspiring stop in Atlanta, CIW members and allies headed northward for the weekend, first passing through the longtime Fair Food hub of Nashville and finally landing in the cold Northern land of Minnesota.

Along the way, CIW members both drew inspiration from and offered their own insights to two sister organizations, Workers Dignity in Nashville and the Centro por Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha (CTUL) in the Twin Cities, strengthening the ties that naturally bind together all communities who have chosen to rise above fear and seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to win justice and dignity in the workplace.  And there were two high-spirited actions in support of the Wendy’s Boycott to boot! 

Meanwhile in Wendy’s hometown of Columbus, OH, Day 1 of the OSU student fast got off to a strong start, as students and youth from across the SFA network commit to taking action in solidarity with fasters throughout the week. If you haven't already, let us know how you'll be responding to the call for support by getting in touch at organize@sfalliance.org.

Head over to the CIW website for the full photo and video report of the Nashville and Minneapolis stops!

Tomorrow, we’ll be back with more from both the OSU student fast front, and the Return to Human Rights Tour’s journey across the Midwest!
