Farmworkers figured out the key to ending sexual violence in the fields and it’s simple.

In March, members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers held a fasting protest against Wendy’s to force Wendy’s to join the Fair Food Program that has drastically reduced sexual assault in the fields. Women (and some men) farmworkers traveled to New York to fast for a week. As far as I can tell, the boycott is still happening. I hope you will join me in supporting the workers by avoiding Wendy’s. Frosties are good, but human rights are better.
