1. I was born in 1930 in a small town in New Mexico. When we lost our farm during the Depression, we moved to California.
2. I grew up and became a teacher, but later I became a labor activist. “I couldn’t stand seeing kids come to class hungry and needing shoes. I thought I could do more by organizing farm workers than by trying to teach their hungry children.”
3. I co-founded the United Farm Workers of America with César Chávez.
