Wagner Food Policy Alliance (WFPA) and Student Network Exploring Art & Culture (SNEAC) are excited to present a short documentary screening of "Fair Tomatoes: A Story About Justice, Dignity and Sustainability" followed by a Q&A with the film's directors. This documentary is a 25-minute film focusing on the plight of farmworkers in Immokalee, Florida--"The Tomato Capital of America"--and their organized efforts to correct abuses and wage issues that persist today. In the last decade, local workers have organized the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a group hoping to raise awareness about corporate social responsibility, community organizing, and sustainable food, while also ending modern-day slavery and other labor abuses.
