Statement from UFW President Teresa Romero: ‘We must renew our determination to take action’

“George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor’s killings demonstrate how all of us must renew our determination to take action against the racism and inequality that still plague our nation—including by electing a new president in November,” said United Farm Workers President Teresa Romero.

“We must also sternly and peacefully resist the injustice that led to their deaths while observing our historic commitment to righteous protest. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. telegrammed Cesar Chavez in 1966, ‘Our separate struggles are really one—a struggle for equality, for freedom, for dignity and for humanity.’ “
