"Our boycott"

Out of respect for the workers who provided food for our table and for the cause of all oppressed and mistreated workers of the world, my family participated in the lettuce and grape boycotts in California.  For years we supported the boycott.  We also have been fortunate to have a few dollars now and then to support the UFW and they remain in our grateful hearts and always will.
The working conditions of farmworkers in America are a disgrace.  I do not feel I can purchase and eat food that has been cared for and harvested by a people that are mistreated.  That food would leave a bad taste in my mouth.
Thank you to all the hardworking and dedicated people that labor to keep us fed.
