Being part of this Alliance has been awesome. We're gonna be noticed. When you bring so many people together for one cause, that's when we make a change.

Ruth Faircloth, Rural and Migrant Ministry

It's gonna take all of us. We really need to start talking amongst each other and getting more organized. Being part of the Food Chain Workers Alliacne is really big for my organization so we can amplify our stories and hopefully bring about change faster.

Dominic Ware, OUR Walmart (Organization United for Respect at Walmart)

I was treated differently after i started organizing to form a union. But it's worth it to fight for equal rights, a better wage and a better future.

Velia Perez, Teamsters Joint Council 7

I think the food movement needs to be much, much broader and the FCWA has made that intersectionality much more visible.

Jen Mendoza, Cincinnati Interfaith Workers Center

To know that other organizations are dealing with with the same issues - if we were all able to come together and work as one, I believe that it will change a lot of things.

Tammy Parkes, Rural and Migrant Ministry

VOICES OF THE FOOD CHAIN

Voices of the Food Chain is a project of the Food Chain Workers Alliance and Real Food Media to capture and share stories of the country’s 20 million food workers in their own words. Including voices of farmworkers, warehouse workers, meatpackers, line cooks, restaurant servers and more, the project features conversations recorded with StoryCorps, black and white portraits, and a video on the current challenges and victories at the intersection of labor and food. Voices of the Food Chain is part of a growing national movement to bring justice to all workers along the food chain.
