"At Least I Could Boycott"

Years ago the boycott on table grapes was started.  This was a small way I could support the workers who fought for better wages and working conditions.  I told everyone I knew to stop buying fresh grapes.  Later came organic foods, pricey but healthier.  I tried to buy them whenever I could because I knew that the men and women harvesting them weren’t exposed to poisons while they worked.  Other than a few donations as I can afford them, at least I can tailor my shopping habits to line up with the UFW’s goals of fairness and respect.
