"Begun in the early 1960s by Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, Larry Itliong, and other organizers, the United Farm Workers of America is the nation's first enduring and largest farm workers' union. The UFW continues its activism in major agricultural sectors, chiefly in California."
"Formerly the National Farm Workers Service Center, the Cesar Chavez Foundation continues to expand on Cesar’s early work and vision to create a movement to improve the quality of life for Latinos and working people."
