The Delano Grape Strike (1965-1967) began when Filipino farm workers walked off the farms of area table-grape growers demanding the federal minimum wage. The National Farmworkers Association led by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta joined the strike which spread to over 2,000 workers. The merging group became the United Farm Workers of America. Through grassroots efforts like boycotts, marches and non-violent resistance, the movement revealed to the nation, the plight of the nation's lowest paid workers.
