On March 15, 2018; dozens of farmworkers with Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), students, faith and community leaders from around the country, concluded the “Freedom Fast”, a five-day fast in front of the hedge fund offices (280 Park Ave) of Nelson Peltz, the Board Chairman and largest shareholder of the fast food giant, Wendy’s, to demand Wendy’s join Fair Food Program and help end sexual violence in the fields. The fast culminated with over a thousand farmworkers and allies taking the streets at the "Time’s Up Wendy’s" march stepping off from Dag Hammarskjold Plaza.
