REGISTER NOW: The Freedom Fast and Time’s Up Wendy’s March are coming!

A beautiful flyer, a brand-new website with all the details, and a list of caravans from around the country… we’ve got what you need to join the CIW’s major spring action in New York City, March 11-15!

It is that time of year:  An advance organizing crew from Immokalee has settled into the Big Apple, the site of this year’s major action in the Wendy’s Boycott.  The electric buzz of anticipation is starting to spread through the Fair Food Nation ahead of the mobilization.  The farmworker community has a bus reserved and the seats are filling up.  The Freedom Fast, March 11-15, is only six weeks away.

And now, you can lock down your plans to come join the five-day Freedom Fast, and to accompany fasters — and thousands of energized Fair Food allies — in breaking the fast at the end of the Time’s Up Wendy’s March through Manhattan on March 15th.  For just a taste of the kind of inspiring, transformative action the Freedom Fast is sure to be, you only have to look back at the 2012 Fast for Fair Food in Lakeland, Florida:
