The United Farm Workers (UFW) agricultural labor union was formed in Delano, California in August 1966.

Cesar Chavez led the union from 1966 until his death in 1993. The collection contains flyers, posters, short publications, and other ephemera promoting the UFW, the Delano grape strike and other UFW campaigns, and Chavez's legacy.
