March for Rights, Respect & Fair Food


From March 3 – 17, 2013, the CIW and allies marched 200 miles from Ft. Myers to Lakeland, calling on Publix to join the New Day
and sign a Fair Food Agreement!

Why We March

We will march so that Publix does, finally, support the Fair Food Program. We will march so that those growers who refuse to meet the new standards no longer get solace, and sales, from retailers like Publix who remain willing to purchase tomatoes produced the old way, “no questions asked.” And we will march so that, one day, farmworkers across this country might enjoy the unprecedented new rights and working relationships being born today in the fields of Florida.
