Loyola Marymount students spend spring break with farmworkers

“10 students from Loyola Marymount University… lived and worked with San Joaquin Valley farmworkers for a week in March, learning about the history of the rural labor movement and organizing a food and clothing drive for out-of-work field hands. The program, a partnership between Loyola Marymount and the Dolores Huerta Foundation, a Bakersfield nonprofit named for the co-founder of the United Farm Workers union, is among a growing number of ‘alternative’ spring breaks in which students skip the boozy revelry in favor of volunteer work around the world.”
