#SchoolingWendys Week of Action


As the summer draws to a close and we enter the fall season,  join the #FairFoodNation as we teach Wendy's a lesson on human rights, organizing pickets, theater pieces, marches and more within our universities, SFA Chapters and Fair Food Groups.  As students continue heating up the national student boycott of Wendy’s, the entire Fair Food Nation will be “Schooling Wendy’s” on the many ways Wendy’s has failed to make the grade: dignified wages and working conditions, the prevention of violence and forced labor and respect for workers’ voices, just to name a few!
