In 1962, César and Helen Chávez began organizing the farm workers in the central valley of California.  The result of these early efforts eventually led to the formation of the National Farm Workers Association whose legendary strike and boycott in September 1965 under the combined leadership of Chávez, Dolores Huerta, and Larry Itliong, who had previously organized Filipino farm workers, was the beginning of the Chicana/o Movement.  Now called United Farm Workers, the union has survived its early Civil Rights era origins as one of the most enduring labor and social movements in the United States.  Diego Luna’s Cesar Chavez: An American Hero screening at UCLA is an occasion to reflect on film, artistic vision, human rights, and social activism.
