Blanca Cruz Vasquez, Gerawan worker

As we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day we ask you to take a moment and read the story of women who labor picking fruit at Gerawan by reading the Mother’s Day blog that Cesar’s widow Helen Chavez published in @ or read about Blanca Cruz Vasquez whose story was shared in Helen’s blog here: “We were working very fast in the grapevines and didn’t have time to look down. I fell into a gopher hole, fell to the ground. They notified the foreman. He did not pay me any attention. He did not ask about my foot or my hand. My hand swelled up. A coworker tied a handkerchief around my hand and that is how I worked all day, with one hand.”
