Big day coming up in Immokalee - April 10th!


If you're within a day's drive of central Florida, please don't miss the big event for youth and young adults to be with the farmworkers who were the driving force behind the Taco Bell Boycott. (People of all other ages are welcome, too.)

This will be a day of celebration, education, and recommitment to the continuing struggle for a fair food industry. We'll worship together, hear the stories of some of the workers, do a tour of the community, and have a great time. I've been looking forward to this visit for months, but it means so much more in light of the end of the strike and the agreement between Yum Brands and the Coalition of Immokalee workers.

Really, if you're anywhere close - get a few friends together or shame your youth worker into coming for the day. Even if you're far away, you're welcome to come. These are important moments to be together.

Hope to see you there.
