The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a community-based organization of mainly Latino, Mayan Indian and Haitian immigrants working in low-wage jobs throughout the state of Florida. The CIW has waged successful campaigns to raise the income for farmworkers picking tomatoes for some of the largest food companies in the world, including McDonalds, Taco Bell, and Whole Foods. The CIW has also worked to expose modern day slavery and forced labor in Florida, earning national and international recognition for their innovative program of worker-led investigation and human rights education. Come hear their inspirational story!
