National convergence for farmworker justice!
Stop the Corporate War on the Poor!
Join farmworkers and thousands of their student, labor, community, and faith-based allies in Louisville, KY for a day of music, speeches, theater and more, calling for an end to sweatshops in the fields.
For nearly four years, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers have led a boycott of Taco Bell to improve the wages and working conditions of tomato pickers. The National Convergence for Farmworker Justice will take place outside the global headquarters of Yum Brands, the world's largest restaurant corporation and owner of Taco Bell.
This year, it's more important than ever that there is a *strong* presence outside Yum's offices. Louisville is centrally located and within driving distance of many cities. Please organize a caravan to join us on March 12 to show your support farmworkers and your opposition to corporate greed!
