In search of a few good teachers and Students

Only 3 more weeks left until the Boycott Taco Bell Truth Tour Hits Southern CA and at this time we are calling on all students and Teachers for some help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. My name is Chantel and I am bottom lining Student/Youth outreach for the Boycott Taco Bell team here in Southern CA along with 2 other people. The Taco Bell Truth Tour will be arriving with farm workers, students, and activist from all over the country on March 10 here in LA for huge teach-in and conference, and on March 11 they will be heading to Irvine CA for a huge march and protest at the Taco Bell Headquarters.

So in doing outreach for this event we have decided to take a hands on approach, and what we are seeking are high school, Colleges, and Universities to get involved. We are asking for teachers/professors who are interested and willing to lend about 10 min. of their class time to us. A few others and myself would like to come to your classroom for about 10-min to give a brief presentation on the national boycott against Taco Bell. We will show a 6-min. video that breaks down in news clips and actual video of farms, farm life, and the Florida Tomatoes pickers plight and struggle in seeking a living wage. This video explains why there is national boycott against taco bell, and shows in simple ways why we should all take on this human rights, immigrant’s rights, and farm workers rights issue on as a personal struggle. The next 4-min that we'll be in your classroom we'll give quick basic flyers that show our peaceful and non-violent cause that we are fighting for. We think that this is the best form of outreach that we can do, to directly talk to students and allow them to ask us questions regarding this issue.

So if you are a teacher/professor or know of any teachers or professors. OR if you are student that thinks this would be something you would like to see happen in your classroom at your school please email me. Right now we are setting up a sched for OC and LA schools that would like this presentation given at in their classrooms, so please let me know what days would be best for you and what city your school is located in . If you are a High School, College, or University Student and you would like to come us visit your class please print this email out and pass it along to your teacher or professor. The Sched. for the next 3 weeks is filling up quick, so please contact us as soon as you can.

Please email me with your information or to ask more questiones at either Cherrysweet@hotmail.com OR MandarinOrangeEssence@yahoo.com OR Tbboycott@yahoo.com

Below is a basic overview on why there is a National Boycott against Taco bell, if you would like to find out more information please go to http://www.ciw-online.org

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers needs your help to make Taco Bell a part of the solution in Florida's farmworkers' fight for dialogue and a fair wage By contracting for cheap tomatoes grown and picked by farmworkers paid sub-poverty wages in Florida, Taco Bell contributes significantly to the continued misery of farmworkers and their families. We believe that the large corporations that buy Florida tomatoes must step up to their responsibility by demanding, and obtaining, changes in the shameful pay and working conditions suffered by the men and women who pick their tomatoes.

Please consider the situation of the farmworkers that picked the tomatoes you will eat today and let Taco Bell know that you expect them to meet with the farmworkers' representatives. Your support can really help.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this
