Leadership Development Opportunity for Young People, Students

Announcing the 2014 Encuentro:
September 4-7; Immokalee, FL

Summer is here and while Immokalee’s tomato growing season has come to a close, SFA is taking some time to dive deep into our own organizational growth and development. Boot the Braids has only just begun, Publix continues to stonewall the Fair Food Program, Wendy’s remains the lone fast-food holdout; tackling these challenges and crafting the strongest campaign possible requires the concentrated force of our network’s energy and creativity.

And so it is with much excitement that we announce plans for this year’s Encuentro, set to take place September 4-7, 2014!

This September we’re convening once more to lay the foundation for what will surely be our strongest season yet. Join us as we build on the strategy and strengthen the bonds that have fueled our campaign fire for over a decade! Here’s a sampling of what’s in store

  • Boot the Braids: escalation plans for the fall semester and beyond
  • Breaking the resistance of the supermarket industry
  • The future of Fair Food
  • Building skills to strengthen our local movements
  • And more!
