At the press conference ending the Taco Bell boycott, CIW member and 2003 RFK Human Rights Award Laureate Lucas Benitez addressed the vast network of boycott allies directly, saying, "Our work together is not done. Now we must convince other companies that they have the power to change the way they do business and the way workers are treated."
So, this Thanksgiving season, when we traditionally celebrate the harvest, let us also celebrate the harvesters. Join the CIW in calling on the world's largest restaurant chain, McDonald's to stop dragging its feet and to work with the CIW to improve the wages and working conditions for the men and women who pick its tomatoes.

Contact McDonald's today and demand they, too, pay a fair price for their tomatoes and work with the CIW to end human rights violations in the fields!
