The Coalition of Immokalee Workers 4 for Fair Food Tour in Gainesville on March 14

From March 2-14, dozens of farmworkers with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) will be traversing the country on the 4 for Fair Food Tour to visit the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Ohio State University in Columbus, and the University of Florida in Gainesville, to demand that Wendy’s to put “human rights” on the menu instead of cheap “4 for $4” deals.   
Lakewood UCC and its members are invited to to join in solidarity with farmworkers and allies from across the country for a spirited demonstration at the University of Florida! On the morning of March 14, members and friends of the church, along with other UCC and Florida allies, will board a bus and head to Gainesville for the march.  The group will return that same evening.  This rally will be calling on the University to cut its ties with Wendy’s until the fast food giant accepts the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ invitation to join the Presidential medal-winning Fair Food Program. Rev. Wells will be participating and would love for others from the congregation to join her.  If you feel called to this ministry, either by going to the rally or making a financial contribution to sponsor someone, please contact Rev. Wells (wells.kim.p@gmail.com).
