In solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ national Wendy’s Boycott and Ohio State University’s Boot the Braids Campaign, JCU will participate in the current rolling student fast this Monday and Tuesday, calling on Wendy’s to commit to protecting farmworkers’ rights in the fields. Students will be occupying the Keller Commons from 9 a.m. on Monday, April 24 until 5 p.m. April 25.
About fasting: Not everyone will be able to fast for 48 hours, and we understand this. We invite you to join in pledging to fast in whatever capacity, such as fasting from a meal to fasting for 48 hours. If fasting is not an option, feel free to stop by our tent to learn how to advocate in equally impactful ways.
