"It's amazing how people can get so excited about a rocket to the moon and not give a damn about smog, oil leaks, the devastation of the environment with pesticides, hunger, disease. When the poor share some of the power that the affluent now monopolize, we will give a damn."
- Cesar Chavez -
One-time migrant worker Chavez founded the National Farm Workers' Association under the following credo:
"Our struggle is not easy. Those who oppose our cause are rich and powerful and have many allies in high places. We are poor. Our allies are few. But we have something the rich do not own. We have our own bodies and spirits and the justice of our cause as our weapons."
