Growing up in small town Iowa, I did not know much of the story of Cesar Chavez and his activism for farm workers. After college, I moved to Kansas City and began working with the Migrant Farmworkers Project here. It has been an enlightening experience. The struggles endured by farm workers across the country are ongoing and I would like to thank the UFW and Cesar Chavez for bringing some of the hardest working and most vulnerable Americans in the public eye. We must continue to fight for the rights and protection of all farm workers across the nation.
