Message from the National Council of Churches USA
People of faith are serious about “fair food” and ending exploitation of farmworkers. That’s the message that faith-based supporters of the consumer boycott of Taco Bell plan to deliver to Taco Bell’s parent company, Yum Brands, at a mass rally March 12 at Yum headquarters in Louisville, Ky. The NCC and several of its member churches (denominations) join with a broad range of organizations in urging people of faith and conscience from around the nation to join this peaceful rally organized by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, whose members pick tomatoes that go into Taco Bell products. The rally will culminate the February 28-March 14 Taco Bell Truth Tour, which will take farmworkers from Immokalee, Fla., through the South and West to Louisville for a "Week of Action" and the mass rally.
