An American Hero

While a student at Alma College Seminary in Los Gatos, during the late ‘60s, several of us sawed and split several cords of wood which we sold; we gave the proceeds to the UFW.  In 1966 I flew with Jim Vizzard, S.J., to Delano where we visited briefly with Cesar in his tiny office.  I remember that he was on the phone to someone in D.C.  I have supported the UFW since then.
