Join the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, the Presbyterian Church of the USA, the American Postal Workers Union, the United Farmworkers, United Students Against Sweatshops, Global Exchange, Food First, the Campaign for Labor Rights, the United Church of Christ and many more in formally endorsing the CIW's Taco Bell Boycott, to let Taco Bell know that your organization won't participate in fast food profits made on farmworker poverty.

Here's what David Korten, author of "When Corporations Rule the World," had to say about the boycott when he added his endorsement to the list:

"I strongly endorse the boycott of Taco Bell and other fast food chains that profit from the misery of underpaid workers and pose a threat to family farms and restaurants. To have a society that works we must all become more conscious of the implications of our food and other buying choices. Make it a regular habit to patronize businesses owned by local people that function as part of a responsible community and avoid patronizing global corporations like Taco Bell that care only for their profits. Taco and hamburger stands should be owned and run by local families, not global corporate predators. David Korten, Author, "When Corporations Rule the World"

If you'd like to join our endorsers list, just email us at workers@ciw-online.org and let us know that you or your organization is interested in officially endorsing the Taco Bell boycott. We'd be happy to help you with anything you might need.
