NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt students hit the streets to demand the school cut ties with the fast food chain Wendy's.
The group, which also included Nashville residents, marched from Vanderbilt’s campus to the Wendy's location on West End.
The event was organized by the group "Nashville Fair Food." The march was part of the “Boot the Braids" campaign led by students at universities across the country.
They wanted their schools to end contracts with Wendy's unless the company commits to respecting farmworker human rights by joining the Fair Food Program.
“We think that students are in the unique position to tell universities if they stand with these values they should not be in business with companies that violate those values on a daily basis,” said Ania Szczesniewski, a Vanderbilt student.
The march was the third stop on a 12-city tour. Monday, students at Ohio State have planned to start a week-long event which will end with a march through Columbus next Sunday.
