Want to be a part of one of the most dynamic, creative student/worker solidarity movements in the country? Apply to join young people from across the country in assembling the 2019 Student/Farmworker Alliance Steering Committee!
The Steering Committee (SC) is the leadership body of SFA, working throughout the year to build up a vibrant, decentralized national network of allies to fuel the farmworker-led Campaign for Fair Food. Each SC member forms part of a unique support team of highly committed SFA members who work closely together to lift up the Fair Food Program's highly successful worker-led model for transformative change in low-wage corporate supply chains, while relentlessly organizing to bring Fair Food corporate holdouts to the negotiating table with the CIW.
The work of bringing the world's third largest hamburger joint to sign an agreement with the CIW is no easy task. As a powerful team, we depend on the work that we all do to escalate pressure in the Wendy's Boycott -- and we're bringing the heat with this fall's escalation plans and upcoming "Pulling Back the Curtain on Wendy’s" National Week of Action from Oct. 22-28. To that end, we strive to build a community of support and accountability among the SC, while creating the food system we envision alongside farmworkers.
The final application deadline is Friday, November 2. Given our commitment to developing a diverse leadership, we strongly encourage people of color, women, working-class, LGBTQIA, gender non-conforming, and differently-abled/disabled people to apply for the SC.
