This Saturday (Nov. 11th), join South Florida students, faith allies and farmworkers at the 4th Annual Miami Action!

 

Join hundreds of allies from across the Miami area including university students, local clergy, faith leaders and community members in a spirited march as they raise their voices to call on both Wendy’s and Publix to end sexual violence in their supply chains!

This Saturday, hundreds of Barry University & St. Thomas University students, along with allies from the Miami area, will host the 4th Annual Miami action. This years’ action is centered around the CIW’s Harvest Without Violence campaign, recently launched by the CIW Women’s Group to highlight the sexual violence endemic in both Wendy’s and Publix’s supply chains and call on the food giants to do their part in securing humans rights for farmworkers by joining the Fair Food Program.

Miami allies are welcome in the spirit of community to join with farmworkers to elevate this call for justice!
