In just 4 days, on April 28th, Immokalee farmworkers and their allies will
be delivering tens of thousands of petition signatures to Burger King
Headquarters in Miami.
You can still add your name and voice to this historic
campaign by clicking here today: http://fairfoodnation.org/petition
For the past two months, individuals and organizations have been collecting signatures in their own communities -- from elementary school children in Denver to U.S. senators in the shadow of the Capitol building -- all to send a powerful message to Burger King and the rest of the food industry that it's time for them to take responsibility for the abysmal working conditions of the farmworkers who pick their tomatoes.

And as everyone in Immokalee prepares for the trip down to Miami, there's still time to collect a few more signatures! If you haven't already, please take a moment to
forward the petition to your family, friends and co-workers and invite them to
add their voice to thousands of others from around the country -- and the world
-- in demanding justice for farmworkers. A form to forward the petition can be
found at: http://www.fairfoodnation.org/petitionthanks
Together, we can tell Burger King that the human rights crisis in its tomato supply chain must end, and it must end today!
