Desert Stonewall Democrats October Virtual Membership Meeting celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month and Filipino American History Month
To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and Filipino American History Month, we will present a program on how local labor history in the Coachella Valley and San Joaquin Valley brought forth the modern-day labor movement for farmworkers.
After a brief introduction, we will screen the documentary "DELANO MANONGS: FORGOTTEN HEROES OF THE UNITED FARM WORKERS MOVEMENT" (2014, 30 minutes) directed by Marissa Aroy.
This film presents the story of farm labor organizer Larry Itliong and a group of Filipino farm workers who instigated one of the United States farm labor movement’s finest hours – The Delano Grape Strike of 1965 that brought about the creation of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW).
