Tomorrow, June 5th, Wendy’s executives will be meeting with shareholders at their headquarters in Dublin, Ohio — and whether they like it or not, Fair Food is going to be squarely at the top of the agenda. As we write, dozens of farmworker families are on the road to Columbus, readying to join scores of allies from across the Midwest at Wendy’s doorstep for a high-energy protest calling on the fast-food giant to join the Fair Food Program.
Whether you’re headed to Columbus or reading this at home, you can add your voice to the growing Fair Food chorus today. We’ve proven time and time again that even the world’s largest corporations can be held accountable for their failure to protect the human rights of farmworkers in their supply chains — but it takes concerted action to make ourselves heard.
Tomorrow, farmworkers and their allies — many of whom fasted for five days in frigid temperatures outside of Board Chairman Nelson Peltz’s offices just a few months ago — will confront the fast food giant’s top executives face-to-face, including Mr. Peltz. Today, YOU can amplify farmworkers’ message, and make sure Wendy’s knows that the women and men who harvest our food are not alone in this fight.
