Cesar Chavez Day – UFW Foundation Fundraiser
Join LAFC, Los Angeles Galaxy, Oakland Roots, Sacramento Republic, and The San Jose Earthquakes for a one-day fundraiser to support the UFW Foundation and their ongoing efforts to support California Farm Workers this Cesar Chavez Day!
The teams have organized a $3,000 dollar-for-dollar match grant. Funds from today’s initiative will go towards UFW Foundation COVID-19 relief and vaccination efforts to support all those who keep us fed!
About the Vaccination efforts - Quitale la Corona! / Roll up your sleeve!
-Vaccinations are open to all farm workers 18 years and older at no charge. No health insurance is required. No doctor’s note or order is needed.
- We encourage farm workers to call the bilingual toll-free call centers of UFW Foundation (661)-501-4280 to see what vaccination events are near them.
-Farm workers have continued to feed America while risking their lives during the pandemic; they need access to vaccination efforts. Farm workers are not only more likely to be infected with COVID-19, but they are also most likely to die from it.
