In the wake of the victory over McDonald's by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and its student, youth, and community allies, dozens of young organizers from around the country will gather in Immokalee, Florida - birthplace of the CIW and the Campaign for Fair Food - for a weekend of skill-sharing, strategizing, and community-building as we take the struggle to end sweatshops in the fields to Burger King and the rest of the fast-food industry.

This gathering - the third-annual Student/Farmworker Alliance Encuentro - will take place over Labor Day weekend, August 30 to September 3. This year's Encuentro will also include a major action at Burger King headquarters in Miami.
