The Alliance for Fair Food is a national network of people working in partnership with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers for farmworker justice.
UNITING FOR FARMWORKER JUSTICE
The Campaign for Fair Food has won binding agreements with fourteen multi-billion dollar food retailers to date, including Taco Bell, McDonald's and Walmart. Tens of thousands of farmworkers are seeing never-before-seen rights in the fields, such as shade and water; the right to file a complaint without fear of retaliation; the right to work free of sexual harassment and modern slavery; and the first real wage increase in 30 years.
Today, as the Fair Food Program grows and the Campaign for Fair Food sees a reach far greater than ever before — through the “Food Chains” film, the Fair Food Program label, and the ever-strengthening on-the-ground organizing of the CIW’s ally network, the three ally organizations — Interfaith
Action, Student/Farmworker Alliance and Just Harvest USA are coming together under the umbrella of the Alliance for Fair Food.
We aim to build upon the network’s greatest strengths as multi-cultural, multi-generational and cross-constituency, while creating space for new allies who have typically fallen outside our structure.
Following the tremendous leadership of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the ally network’s tenacity, creativity, spirit and commitment have been integral to the unprecedented victories for workers that are changing the landscape of human rights in U.S. agriculture. Drawing from our collective strengths and successes, our mission remains to stand with farmworkers as they continue their struggle for justice and dignity.
