The Story of César Chávez, Dolores Huerta and a Great Movement for Social Justice

“And though you may be old and bent from many years of labor, no man will stand taller than you when you say ‘I marched with César Chávez.’” —Robert F. Kennedy

Viva La Causa focuses on one of the seminal events in the march for human rights—the grape strike and boycott led by César Chávez and Dolores Huerta in the 1960s. Viva la Causa shows how thousands of people from across the nation joined in a struggle for justice for the most exploited people in our country—the workers who put food on our tables.

Viva La Causa meets content standards for social studies and language arts, grades 7-12.
