In this episode, Dr. Rebecca Matthew and Dr. Llewellyn Cornelius interview Nelly Rodriguez, leader of the The Coalition of Immokalee Workers. The CIW is a worker-based human rights organization internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of social responsibility, human trafficking, and gender-based violence at work. Built on a foundation of farmworker community organizing starting in 1993, and reinforced with the creation of a national consumer network since 2000, CIW’s work has steadily grown over more than twenty years to encompass three broad and overlapping spheres: The Fair Food Program, Anti-Slavery Campaign and The Campaign for Fair Food.
