La Causa is the story of Marta Hernandez, the daughter of Mexican American migrant workers, and her life changing involvement in the Farm workers Movement led by Cesar Chavez in the 1960's and 70's.
In the late 1960's a new movement changed the lives of Latin American farm workers who fought for civil rights, battled racism and indecent working conditions. Experience this chapter of American history as one young woman balances the demands of her family and culture and fights to see her people free of poverty.
