Object Description: Stories of struggle and survival from earlier decades served as rich sources of historical material and political awareness for artists active at Self Help Graphics during the 1990s. They often refer in their work to the United Farm Workers union (UFW), which during the 1960s protested to improve conditions for agricultural laborers across the country. In "Cesar Vive", Ofelia Esparza features symbols and figures associated with the UFW, like César Chávez, to represent Chicanx pride.
