This short video focuses on Lupe Briseño and her leadership to unionize Chicana carnation workers in the late 1960s in Brighton, Colorado. Lupe was the catalyst for an eight-month strike with the backing of the National Floral Workers Organization (NFWO). They demanded better wages, benefits and working conditions. Although less known than the farm-worker struggles of the same period, this important piece of Chican@ history illustrates the importance of Chicana leadership in workplace struggles for dignity and justice. Watch the video and keep an eye out for additional teaching tools connected to Symbols of Resistance and the Chican@ Movement.
