Fair Tomatoes

Immokalee, Florida, the tomato-growing capital of America, is also home to abysmal working conditions and extreme hardships of those laboring on the farms. Fair Tomatoes follows the Coalition of Immokalee Workers on their quest to obtain better conditions and rebuild their community, while addressing how we all can become more sustainable consumers.
