Coalition of Immokalee Workers

Today, following months of struggle and advocacy by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and the Alliance for Fair Food (co-founded by NESRI), Florida Governor Charlie Crist finally sent the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) a letter stating "I have no tolerance for slavery in any form, and I am committed to eliminating this injustice anywhere in Florida..." Crist went on to recognize the indisputable link between slavery and the failure to protect the economic and social rights of farmwokers, and stated "I support the Coalition's Campaign for Fair Food."
