Farmworker women launch their "Harvest Without Violence" campaign to end sexual violence in Wendys fast food supply chain
featuring
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers

Now, amidst the stories that are surfacing about sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape against woman, too often low-wage woman workers have been subjected to sexual violence against their person in their work place, but their voices have oftentimes been eclipsed. And, we barely think about the workers who are responsible for the bounty of food on our tables. So, Building Bridges is off to join the formidable farmworker women leaders of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers for a major "Harvest without Violence" march. The CIW Womens Group traveled to the Big Apple to demand a meeting with Wendy's Board Chairman and major shareholder Nelson Peltz to share their powerful stories and demand Wendys do its part to end sexual violence in the fields. Join the farmworkers in their Boycott Wendys march through Midtown Manhattan to Trian Partners, the multi-billion dollar asset management firm founded by Nelson Peltz, the chairman of The Wendys Company, based in New York. Declare that farmworker women should not have to surrender their dignity for the right to put food on their families tables!
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
