Coalition of Immokalee Workers presentation, November 29

The Department of Social Sciences invites students, faculty, staff, and the Saint Leo University community to a presentation by Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) senior staff member and National Co-Coordinator with the Student Farmworker Alliance, Ximena Pedroza, at 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 29, in TECO Hall. 

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is a worker-based human rights organization that is internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of social responsibility, human trafficking, and gender-based violence in the workplace. Built on a foundation of a farm worker community in 1993 and reinforced with the creation of a national consumer network in 2000, the CIW’s work has been at the forefront of the groundbreaking Fair Food Program that is transforming the landscape of social responsibility in our food chains.
