Celebrating Cesar Chavez and the Farmworkers' Movement
Friday, April 11, 2008
Come celebrate the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez. We will be
screening the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation film "Common Man, Uncommon
Vision: The Cesar Chavez Story" and "Immokalee: From Slavery to
Freedom," which documents the current actions of a Florida union to
end the inhumane conditions experienced by farmworkers who grow and
harvest the food used by the fast-food industry. We will hear from a
local expert or two on current food justice issues and information
will be on hand about the movement today and current campaigns to
protect workers and the environment. The evening will also include
tasty organic snacks to accompany the film screenings!
Time: 7pm - 9pm
