1. Question In the 1930’s, migrant farm workers like Esperanza and her family faced harsh living conditions in the migrant camps where they lived. They worked long hours, under dangerous work conditions, for very little pay. In this lesson, you will explore how Cesar Chavez’s experiences as a migrant farm worker influenced his beliefs and motivated him to fight for the rights of other farm workers. You’ll learn about how his work led to the formation of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW) and make connections to the characters in Esperanza Rising.
