Boot the Braids
Boot the Braids UF is where we stand with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in their fight to call on Wendy's to join the Fair Food Program.
"Rather than respecting farmworker women and committing to suspend purchases from suppliers that violate farmworkers’ human rights, Wendy's has shifted their tomato purchases to Mexico, where abuse of agricultural workers is endemic and goes unchecked. Sexual violence, in particular, is shockingly widespread — and unacceptable. To protect their brand, Wendy's promotes an illusory Supplier Code of Conduct that excludes workers' voices and lacks consequences for abuses.Wendy's urgently needs to join the Fair Food Program to do its part in building an industry in which farmworker women no longer have to surrender their dignity for the right to put food on their families’ tables." - Alliance For Fair Food
We would like to thank the Coalition of Immokalee Workers for all the hard work they accomplish towards farm worker justice. They have constantly assisted Chispas’ Boot the Braids campaign on boycotting Wendy’s here at the University of Florida.
