Following the tour’s inspiring stop in Atlanta, CIW members and allies headed northward for the weekend, first passing through the longtime Fair Food hub of Nashville and finally landing in the cold Northern land of Minnesota.
Along the way, CIW members both drew inspiration from and offered their own insights to two sister organizations, Workers Dignity in Nashville and the Centro por Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha (CTUL) in the Twin Cities, strengthening the ties that naturally bind together all communities who have chosen to rise above fear and seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to win justice and dignity in the workplace. And there were two high-spirited actions in support of the Wendy’s Boycott to boot!
Meanwhile in Wendy’s hometown of Columbus, OH, Day 1 of the OSU student fast got off to a strong start, as people across the Alliance for Fair Food network commit to participating in the recently announced National Day of Prayer and Fasting this Friday, March 24! (If you haven’t already, tell us how you’ll be in solidarity with the OSU student fasters and farmworkers on tour later this week by filling out the form on our website.)
Tomorrow, we’ll be back with more from both the OSU student fast front, and the Return to Human Rights Tour’s journey across the Midwest!
