Now in Spanish, read about Cesar Chavez and his experiences as a migrant farmworker. He knew about poverty and pain, discrimination and despair. He grew up with one goal: to make a difference. Chavez organized a labor union, which became the United Farm Workers Union, to demand higher wages and better working and living conditions. A staunch believer in nonviolence, his strategies included strikes, boycotts, marches, and personal hunger strikes. By bringing national attention to the workers' desperate plight, Chavez forced growers to improve their laborers' lives.
