      There is a brand-new CD-ROM that recently became available for public
      access.  It comprises 195 narratives written by United Farm Workers of
      America, AFL-CIO, activists and staffers as well as music, art work and a
      video from the movement.  The compilation is the outcome of a listserve
      started by LeRoy Chatfield, a longtime UFW staffer.  The listserve ran for
      about eight months in 2004 and was limited to current and former activists
      and staffers.  It generated some remarkable material as well as some
      vigorous discussion and debate.

      The document is published by SI SE PUEDE PRESS and is titled "Cesar Chavez:
      The Farmworker Movement 1962-1993.  Primary source accounts by the
      volunteers who built the farmworker movement."

      The following is a direct quotation from Mr. Chatfield.

      "LeRoy Chatfield is solely responsible for compiling these primary source
      accounts/documents, and organizing these materials into various categories
      for this CD presentation.  No editorial censorship with respect to the
      content of this material has been exercised.  If any author/contributor of
      the material presented is concerned about the lack of appropriate
      attributions, the Documentation Project is pleased to correct this
      oversight in future editions and on its website."

      Further information about the project can be found on the project's website:

      www.farmworkermovement.org

      A donation to help cover the production expenses will provide anyone who is
      interested with a copy of the CD-ROM.  Some of us are urging libraries to
      obtain a copy so that students and the general public may have access to
      the information.

      Send a voluntary contribution to further the work of the Farmworker
      Documentation Project and you will receive a 'thank you' in the form of a
      CD.  In addition to the contribution, please include enough funds to cover
      the cost of postage and the cushioned mailing envelope.
