Come and take part in a learning/service/action/reflection immersion experience in the heart of the “Fair Food Movement” with leaders from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Interfaith Action of SW Florida, and the UU Church of Ft. Myers.

This event is sponsored by the MidAmerica Region of the UUA, but is open to all!

Stand with other UU’s as we learn, reflect, serve, and create a “Standing on the Side of Love,” fair food action to bring awareness to the noble efforts of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. We will be learning about the Campaign for Fair Food, and will be taking a public stance in an action to pressure the corporate food industry, with companies such as Kroger’s, Publix, and Giant, to come to the bargaining table with CIW. We will be immersed in learning, action, service, and reflection to honor CIW’s pledge:

Consciousness + Commitment = Change


The Alternative Fair Food Spring Break will begin on Wednesday evening, March 20th at the UU Church of Ft. Myers, FL. On Thurs., 3/21, we will caravan to the community center of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, in Immokalee, FL, and then on Friday, 3/22, we will create and take part in a Standing on the Side of Love fair food campaign action (which is open to the public). We will conclude by mid-day, Saturday, Mar. 23rd with plans to take our energy and mobilization to our hometowns!
