Farmworker Justice Event & March through Mission to SOMA Trader Joe’s!
Sunday, July 17th @ 4:00 pm
Center for Political Education
522 Valencia St., 3rd floor
Join the Bay Area community in welcoming the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to California and learning about this Florida-based farmworker organization’s innovative and highly successful Campaign for Fair Food.
Following a panel discussion about the CIW’s work to end human rights abuses in the agricultural industry, we’ll take out our signs, banners and instruments and march a short mile to the SOMA Trader Joe’s to demand justice for the farmworkers who harvest their tomatoes. (We’ll walk down Mission, take a left on Folsom and a right on 9th St. down to the Trader Joe’s on the corner of 9th and Brannan.)
Refreshments provided. Live Son Jarocho music, too!
