"Welcome to Chicago"

The UFW sent a delegation to Chicago to promote the lettuce boycott.  Having participated in both grape and lettuce boycotts, I was proud to be in an assembly when the group filed in.  One person brought his parakeet along.  It sat on top of his head.  The United Methodist Church in Hyde Park had merged with another congregation and had an empty building where the visitors could stay.  I enjoyed eating and singing with some of the happiest people I had met.
I still look for products from companies that are just to farm workers.
