In 1965, Cesar Chavez and his United Farm Workers organization launched a strike against grape growers in California. For five years, they fought to win fair wages, better working conditions, and recognition as a union from the growers. Readers will learn about Chavezs methods of resistance, how the movement grew to include people from all walks of life throughout the country, and why Chavez was such as effective leader. They will also find out what Chavez did in the years following the strike and examine his early life.
