"A small thing"

A small thing

I first heard about Cesar at a CUPE national convention in 1993. A passionate young man introduced the No Grapes campaign to the convention and distributed copies of a video.  It was the first time that I realized that my washing my produce to get rid of pesticides to protect my family was simply not enough.  It was the first time that I learned about the UFW and their struggles. At that convention, I bought some UFW merchandise and made a small donation. I showed the No Grapes video to anyone who would watch. Since that time, I try to make people aware, to pay attention to where their food comes from and to only buy from ethical producers. It’s a small thing, but I hope it helps.
