The effort to organize farm workers under a union contract has been a long and difficult struggle. In 1965, César Chávez and Dolores Huerta created what would become the United Farm Workers Union. From the onset they faced many obstacles, not the least of which was how to get dozens of California grape growers to recognize their union. They hit upon the idea of a pilgrimage march, a peregrinación, from the farm workers headquarters in Delano, California to the California state capital in Sacramento. Dolores Huerta spoke to Latinopia about how the idea came about and what the results were from this historic march.
