Cesar Chavez (1927-1993) was a labor leader and champion of Latino American civil rights. Born in Arizona to Mexican American parents, he served in the US Navy before becoming involved in helping poor rural communities to organise themselves politically. He organised the successful Delano grape strike of 1965-1970 and co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, later the United Farm Workers labor union which popularised the slogan “Sí, se puede/Yes we can”.

Chavez organized strikes among farmworkers, called for boycotts, and pressured farm owners into granting strikers’ demands using non-violent methods.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 27.5in. Machine wash at 110 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
