Boot the Braids weekend of action
April 25-27

Mucho Peor

Since the launch of Boot the Braids last January, the Fair Food Nation has sprung into action organizing teach-ins, letter delegations and demonstrations at Wendy's campuses across the country!

As we head into summer, it's time to take action again! Here's what you can do:

Students on Wendy's and non-Wendy's campuses alike are planning to shake things up and you, too, can get in on the action! From a red-wig letter delegation to a flash mob outside Wendy's, the possibilities are endless. Get creative and have fun! Email us for more ideas, and be sure to send your picture(s) and/or video to
