The Delano Grape Strike (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
On September 16, 1965, Filipino and Mexican American migrant workers joined together to strike against the grape growers in Delano, California. The farmers left the fields to demand better wages and benefits. Led by Larry Itliong, Cesar Chavez, and Dolores Huerta, the two groups created a union called the United Farm Workers of America. For five years, UFW brought attention to their cause through boycotts, a 300-mile march, and other nonviolent efforts in what became an important victory in the fight for labor and farmworker rights in the United States.
