The United Farm Workers and La Union del Pueblo Entero invite you to join the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the 1966 Starr County Strike and March, on Friday, September 9 at 9 AM in Edinburg, Texas. The event will celebrate the 1966 farm worker strike and march to Austin that protested harsh working conditions and low wages being paid to harvest cantaloupes
