CIW and Walking tour

Yesterday we were given a presentation by Oscar and Violeta (CIW AND AFF) about the work of the Coalition and the Fair Food program. 
They talked about the equation that helps to make the work here in Immokalee so successful “Consiousness + Commitment= Change”

We were invited to lift a 32 pound bucket of tomatoes like Farmworker must lift all day, every day in the fields. It was much harder than Natalia makes it look….

And Sylvia gave us a walking tour of the town where we learned about housing cost….. it’s astronomical $350-450 a WEEK for one of the trailers and got to see some historical locations for the fair food movement.
