“We don’t need perfect political systems; we need perfect participation.” - Cesar Chavez

Nan Freeman Memorial

View the moving dedication of the Nan Freeman Memorial on April 2 at New College in Sarasota, Florida, the campus of the 18-year-old Jewish woman who became the first of five United Farm Workers’ martyrs when she was killed on a 1972 sugar strike picket line. Among those speaking at the unveiling of the beautiful outdoor twin facing murals was UFW President Teresa Romero. Cesar Chavez called Nan Freeman “a sister” who died while fulfilling the commandments.
