Treasures from the KBOO Archives: César Chávez

César Estrada Chávez was co-founder and leader of the United Farmworkers Union. From the 1950s until his death in 1993, he was an eloquent spokesman for economic justice for those who provide us with the food we eat. In 1974, at the height of the boycott of grapes, lettuce and Gallo wine, César Chávez came to Portland and spoke at Reed College.
