Short films and conversation with award-winning farmworker group, Coalition of Immokalee Workers

Join us for a night of film and conversation with Oscar Otzoy, a farmworker leader of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and representatives of Ohio Fair Food. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers is an internationally-recognized group of farmworkers, who, through a 20-year struggle, have won campaigns with 12 multi-billion dollar corporations to transform pay, conditions and power dynamics in the tomato fields of Florida. We’ll show short clips of the hardships and triumphs, including a clip of the never-before-seen documentary Food Chains, produced by Eva Longoria and narrated by Forest Whitaker, which just premiered this month at the Berlin Film Festival. We’ll also learn from Ohio Fair Food how Columbus has suddenly become the focal point of this nationwide effort and about the major March to Wendy’s Headquarters approaching on March 9th.
