Support "Viva la Causa!"

Viva la Causa! in Production
New Teaching Tolerance Film Set for September Release

In September, SPLC's Teaching Tolerance program will unveil a new documentary film and teaching kit, Viva la Causa!, that focuses on one of the seminal events in the march for human rights — the grape strike and boycott led by Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta in the 1960s. Viva la Causa! will show how thousands of people from across the nation joined in a battle for justice for the most exploited people in our country — the workers who put food on our tables.

Like all of our Teaching Tolerance products, the film and kit will be distributed free to classrooms across the nation and will inspire millions of children for years to come.

The film could not be timelier.
