Harvesting Justice for Farmworkers
Date(s) - Wednesday, October 9, 2013
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center
Have you ever wondered where your red, plump, juicy tomatoes come from?
Join the Latino Cultural Center in a rare opportunity to hear from the Student/Farmworker Alliance (SFA) and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) in the historical and growing movement to end human rights abuses and poverty wages in Florida’s tomato fields. They will lead an interactive conversation on their campaign efforts to demand corporate restaurant responsibility to the farmworkers who supply their ingredients and to stop farm labor exploitation.
The SFA is a national network of students and youth organizing with farmworkers to eliminate sweatshop conditions and modern-day slavery in the fields.
The CIW is a community-based farmworker organization internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of corporate social responsibility, community organizing, and sustainable food.
If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.
