Making Subway Fair with the Alliance for Fair Food and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers doesn’t rest. The Northeast Subway Tour is set to begin in December when members and allies leave Immokalee heading north along I-95 to Milford, Connecticut, where Subway’s corporate headquarters are located.

From Washington, DC to Boston, Massachusetts, the tour delegation will be meeting with local students, faith leaders, labor organizers, and community groups to bring public attention to the plight of farm workers in the fields where Subway’s tomatoes are picked.
