Both my parents were Farm Workers, I too worked the fields along side them. I remember as a child 10 years of age, marching/striking at the Capitol od OR singing…
Everywhere we go… people want to know… who we are… so we tell them… are Chicano’s… mighty, mighty Chicano’s..Viva La Raza!
That song stayed with me to this day, it was then at the age of 10 I understood
La Causa my father was trying to instill in all 14 of his children.
Today I am a proud productive and hard working Chicana that instilled those values in my grown children and participate in a March when I can. Proud to be a UFW! Carmen Gonzales
