Now Is the Time to Boycott Wendy’s (Video & Link)

I almost ducked into a Wendy’s restaurant last week. They have pretty good chili. But I’m glad I decided to make a batch of homemade chili, instead. This week I learned the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) are boycotting Wendy’s.

I’m with them! How about you? Will you abstain from Wendy’s for as long as it takes to help that company get with the program? I.e., this program: Workers Matter!

Don’t miss the awesome video the Coalition has made about this boycott. You’ll see many strong, inspiring human rights activists. You’ll witness the Power of The People.

But even against the background of that heady timeline of struggle and change marking the progress of the CIW’s Campaign for Fair Food over the past decade and a half, yesterday’s launch of the Wendy’s Boycott stands out as a momentous day in the fight for Fair Food. […]

Check back soon as the  makes its way to its next big stop and action in Columbus, OH, Wendy’s corporate hometown!
