Dozens of farmworkers with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and consumer allies from across the country will begin a five-day Freedom Fast on the morning of Sunday, March 11 to demand an end to sexual violence in the fields. They will be stationed around the clock outside Trian Partners, the hedge fund offices of Wendy's Board Chair Nelson Peltz, at 280 Park Avenue in Manhattan. Learn more about why we're fasting
