Join us for this special session of the APPSI Lifelong Learning Series featuring speakers from the Student / Farmworker Alliance and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers.

The Student / Farmworker Alliance is a national network of students and young people organizing with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to uproot exploitation in the fields and build a food system based on justice, respect, and dignity for farmworkers.

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a worker-based human rights organization internationally recognized for its achievements protecting the rights of farmworkers – notably, in fighting human trafficking, wage theft, and gender-based violence. The CIW is also recognized for pioneering the design and development of the Worker-driven Social Responsibility paradigm, a worker-led, market-enforced approach to the protection of human rights in corporate supply chains.

Presented by the Asia Pacific Peace Studies Institute
