Advocacy For Justice:  Farmworker Exploitation, 
Anti-Slavery & the Fair Food Program

 

ADVOCACY FOR JUSTICE:
Farmworker Exploitation,
Anti-Slavery & the Fair Food Program

Mon., Feb. 3, 2014 - 6-8pm
Bennett Hall @ Scarritt-Bennett (Raintree Room)
1008 19th Ave. S., Nashville 37212

On any given day, the food we eat may have been picked and processed by workers laboring in abusive and violent conditions. As consumers, we can advocate to ensure more ethical conditions in the fields.

Come learn directly from farmworkers about one of the most successful anti-poverty and anti-slavery programs of our generation. Join us for an in depth look at the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and their groundbreaking work to end modern-day slavery and human rights abuses in the agricultural industry.

We'll engage the CIW's Fair Food Program, a pioneering model for social responsibility based on a unique partnership among farmworkers, Florida tomato growers, and participating buyers, to learn more about what we can do to be empowered consumers and advocates for justice.

This event is FREE, but RSVP’s are suggested:
