Farmworker Movement Documentation Project - Presented by the UC San Diego Library


This publication, “Cesar Chavez: The Farmworker Movement, 1962-1993” (SI SE PUEDE PRESS 2005) is dedicated to the volunteers who built the farmworker movement. It is but one way to say thank you for the years of dedicated and selfless service they gave to improve the wages, working conditions, and quality of life for exploited, impoverished, and powerless farmworkers.
