Slavery Museum wraps up Northeast Tour!


Final stop at Compass Group headquarters in Charlotte, NC, perfect ending to a great tour; See the links to reports from all the stops below…

A three-week tour focused on the problem of modern-day slavery in Florida’s fields ended with an emphasis on the solution to farm labor exploitation on its final stop in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The stop took place in the shadow of foodservice industry leader Compass Group’s corporate headquarters (above), and the day was a clear demonstration of the ever growing partnership among workers, consumers, growers and major food retailers, a partnership that promises to one day end the poverty and often brutal abuse of this country’s farmworkers.

This fall is sure to be full of action. See you there!
