On Saturday, March 21st, farmworkers will gather with thousands of allies from across the U.S. for the first-ever Concert for Fair Food, harnessing the power of music to spark the consciousness of consumers and amplify the call for Publix and Wendy’s to finally recognize their responsibility to the people who harvest their produce. Featuring Grammy-winning and nationally-recognized artists, the Concert will raise the Campaign for Fair Food’s message to new heights.
Like many of history’s most powerful grassroots movements for change, the movement for Fair Food has been driven by art and music. Theater, music, murals, and puppets rooted in the diverse cultural traditions of the Fair Food Nation have always brought its message to life. Art animates the struggles farmworkers face in the fields and articulates their demand to work with dignity. Stepping off at noon on March 21, the Fair Food Parade will once again fill the streets of St. Petersburg with the art and creative spirit of the CIW’s Campaign for Fair Food.
