ISSUE: Workers' Rights (Immokalee Workers)


Shane Claiborne first introduced me to the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in The Irresistible Revolution. A coworker reminded me of the issue today when he gave me a postcard to sign and send to Chipotle that raises the issue of farm worker rights.

Check out this Virtual Tour and the coalition website.

Susan and I are reading up on it tonight. Now you can too!
