"A wanderer's tale"

A wanderer's tale

I was born just north of Merced, California, at an Air Force Base.  Two weeks after I was born, my father was transferred and it was off to Oklahoma.  A childhood spent seeing the world, it was not until I returned to California as an adult that I began to learn about the place where I was born and the heroic struggle of the people who work the land.  What has impressed me greatly is the breadth and depth and intensity of support I have seen for the cause, and the enthusiasm and can-do spirit of the people who make the UFW one of this country’s most formidable labor movements.  I am proud to be a UFW supporter, and look forward to more victories for the rights of farm workers in the future.
