After meeting with representatives of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) on Wednesday of last week and making t-shirts yesterday, students are preparing to join a CIW protest at Publix on Ponce de Leon in Atlanta on October 3 at 6pm. Publix has refused fair treatment and pay to the farm workers of Immokalee. 23 members of the CTS students, families, staff and faculty have already signed up to participate. If you are at all interested in coming, contact Maggie Chandler - ChandlerMaggieK@mail.ctsnet.edu or Allison Wehrung - allison.wehrung@gmail.com. We will meet at 5pm at the Garden for prayer, reflection and preparation. We'll drive at around 5:30pm. For others, we will be glad to meet up with you at the event.
