Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. -Robert Kennedy
As you reflect on your journey in putting on a production inspired by the true story of Cesar Chavez and the United Farmworkers, explain how you stood up to injustice and created a change for the better.
First, summarize the story of Cesar Chavez and how he stood up for the rights of the farmworkers by giving three examples of injustices and then the solution for each injustice. Second, reflect on your experience as a student growing up with intersectional issues and share one example of the injustice you experienced and how you stood up to make a change.
How has your experiences being in the production and within your own life journey shaped you to be the person you are today?
