Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Campaign for Fair Food
This case study explores the concept of resistance with a contemporary example of migrant farm workers organizing for better wages and conditions. Students learn about the methods and strategies the Coalition of Immokalee Workers use to accomplish their goals. Students will also explore the relationship between art and resistance. The goal of this case study is to introduce a 21st-century example of a resistance movement and to inspire students to begin thinking about social action in their own lives.
