A testament to the tenacity of the [Coalition of Immokalee Workers].—Katrina vanden HeuvelMigrant farm workers in the United States are routinely forced to live and work in unsafe, often desperate, conditions.

In Immokalee, Florida, the tomato capital of the world—which has earned the dubious distinction of being ground zero for modern slavery—farm workers organized themselves into the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, and launched a nationwide boycott campaign that forced McDonalds, Burger King, and Taco Bell to recognize their demands for workers rights.Silvia Giagnoni is a journalist based in Montgomery, Alabama.
