March 9-11: 6th Annual UFW College Student Conference
- 6th Annual
College Student Conference
March 9 - 11, 2001
at UFW's Keene, CA headquarters
Dear College Participants:
¡Bienvenidos! You are invited to participate in our 6th Annual United Farm
Workers Student Conference, “Celebrando El Legado de Cesar” on March 9-11,
2001 in La Paz, UFW headquarters. At the conference, you will meet other
student activists, attend training workshops on what the UFW is about and
learn ways in how to organize your school and community on farm worker issues.
This conference is open to college students only for a fee of $60.00 per
student (transportation not included). The deadline is February 26. There is
limited housing available (on a first come, first serve basis) and you need
to pre-register to be guaranteed housing.
Now that we’ve reached the year 2001, farm workers are still struggling in
the fields for better working conditions; La Lucha continua. With all your
help, we will be celebrating Cesar’s birthday as a state paid holiday for the
very first time! Si Se Pudo! Only organized can we mobilize our communities
in order to win justice para los campesinos.
In La Paz meet volunteers and members who built the union, and where Cesar
Chavez is laid to rest. You will also find out how you can get involved in La
Causa and be part of El Movimiento.
Hope to see you there!
