Coalition of Immokalee Workers Support Fair Food Education

Use #GivingTuesday and 2014’s holiday season to help us raise $10,000 and underwrite CIW’s crucial worker-to-worker education program
In one very important way, this holiday season is unlike any other in the CIW’s twenty-year history.  Yes, like every year, workers have returned to Immokalee from their summer season up north.  The CIW’s weekly membership meetings are filling the community center in Immokalee again, calls to request songs dedicated to friends and family are jamming the CIW’s Radio Conciencia’s phone lines again, and CIW staff and Central Committee members are starting preparations for Immokalee’s annual “Year of the Worker” party, again.  And like every year at this time, the harvest here in Florida has begun, ramping up now only to ramp down again when next summer comes and the whole cycle begins anew.
But this year is different because Florida’s tomato harvest, and the CIW’s campaign to modernize the state’s tomato industry after generations of poverty and abuse, are the subject of a major new documentary, “Food Chains,” that has been playing to sold-out crowds in major cities around the country.  And while hundreds of moviegoers left their local theaters and went straight into actions in cities like New York, Miami, and Washington, DC, and thousands more participated in post-screening panel discussions with food movement leaders like Michael Pollan, Eric Schlosser, and Alice Waters, virtually every last viewer who saw “Food Chains” left the film with one question on his or her mind: What can I do to support farmworkers?
There are many ways to take action in the Campaign for Fair Food.  Right now, you can see the film itself — or give it to friends and family as a gift on iTunes. Or you can take action by delivering a letter to the manager of a local Wendy’s or of your neighborhood grocery store, signing petitions, and taking part in Fair Food protests in your community .  
But there is another way of taking action in support of the Fair Food Program, one that we very rarely mention on this site, and that is to make a tax deductible donation to help sustain our work...
