Farm workers protest: End sexual violence in the fields!

ANSWER Coalition activists mobilized to participate in a demonstration on March 15 against Wendy's held in New York City organized by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers demanding an end to sexual violence in the fields and fair wages for farm workers.

The Call to Action for the event stated, "Consumers will NOT remain silent knowing Wendy's has chosen to partner with an industry where its brand will be protected because women there are afraid to complain and are forced into silence. The time is up for corporate leaders, like Mr. Peltz, who have the power to end sexual violence against women in their supply chains and yet, do nothing."

Below are photos from the action:
