Marina Cruz, Gerawan Grape worker

Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day. Today 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 it in spanish on Mamá @ You can read about Marina Cruz whose story was shared in Helen’s blog here. She tells us, “I’m a mother of 5 children. I’ve endured abuse and humiliation because of the necessity to work for my children. … I feel the support of the United Farm Workers and I know things will change with their help at the company. There will be better treatment [and] no more abuse or favoritism. But most of all we will be given the respect we deserve as farm workers.”
