Grape Boycott at the UW Lesson Plan
Targeted Age: middle/high school
Targeted Time Period: one 90-minute Block

created by Teresa Frizell

Objective: Students will examine and assess the tactics used by Chicano students and their allies at UW in their successful attempt to remove non-union grapes from all campus eating facilities during the United Farm Workers grape boycott of 1968-69. They will connect these activities with present-day responsible consumerism movements such as Fair Trade and sweatshop-free and assert whether and how these tactics could be used as a model for their own activism.
