"Boycott Grapes."

Boycott Grapes.

It was a simple gesture.  I was becoming more informed about farm workers in the 1980’s.  I understood very quickly the problems and in justice’s.  I was working at the ACLU of So.Calif. at the time and had the opportunity to meet Cesar in our offices.  That meeting had a huge impact on me; to witness his passion and dedication up close.  I knew I would boycott grapes, at the very least.  And I would share this action with everyone I came in contact with.  I did not eat grapes for 20 years.  Of course, there is so much more.
