Women farmworkers to Wendy's, Publix: "We will never go back to the way it was before, living every day with exploitation - we want all women to have the experience of working with dignity." 

This past weekend, the brisk fall weather drew hundreds of farmworkers and allies out onto the sidewalks in both Miami, Florida, and Washington, DC, for two high-spirited protests in support of Fair Food. Galvanized by the explosive national conversation about the widespread epidemic of sexual harassment in the workplace, the marchers took action to put a stop to sexual violence in U.S. agricultural fields - the very fields where observers can find both the very worst workplace sexual abuse this country has to offer, in frequency and degree, and the country's most effective program for preventing that abuse: the Fair Food Program. 

Today, we bring you photo reports from Miami and Washington, just in time to warm up the Fair Food Nation for next Monday's major mobilization outside the offices of Wendy's Board Chairman, Nelson Peltz, in New York City. 
Miami, Florida


Miami never fails to put on a great protest, and this past Saturday was no exception!  Over 200 farmworkers, their families and allies from across South Florida gathered at Margaret Pace Park to march up Miami's bustling Biscayne Boulevard to the local Wendy's in a boisterous, high-spirited action.

As the crowd stepped off for the 3-mile march, accompanied by members of Miami's Police Department, the bright sun and breezy weather lifted everyone's spirits...
