Columbus has become the focal point of a nationwide effort by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) to persuade Wendy's to support farm worker rights by joining its Fair Food Program.

On Tuesday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m. the Columbus Free Press is hosting a free short film night and information session at the Drexel Theatre, 2254 East Main Street in Columbus.

Oscar Otzoy of the CIW and representatives of Ohio Fair Food will discuss the 20-year struggle to transform pay, working conditions, and power dynamics in the tomato fields of Florida. So far 12 multi-billion dollar food corporations have signed agreements with the CIW to support economic justice for farm workers.

The evening will include short films about the CIW's hardships and triumphs, and a clip of the never-before-seen documentary Food Chains, produced by Eva Longoria and narrated by Forest Whitaker, which premiered this month at the Berlin Film Festival.

The event is free and all are welcome. No reservations are needed, but you can RSVP on Facebook.

A march on Wendy's headquarters in Dublin is planned for Sunday, March 9.
