One of the few surviving 1965 Filipino grape strikers who started the Delano grape strike on Sept. 8, 1965, Lorraine Agtang was only 13 when the walkouts began. The Agtangs proudly returned to work under UFW contracts when the strike was won in 1970. They walked out again in 1973, during the second grape strike. Lorraine was first manager of the Paulo Agbayani Retirement village for elderly and displaced Filipino farm workers after it opened in 1974. She was a UFW organizer, working with multiple ethnicities, during the first union elections held when the farm labor law took effect in 1975. “The UFW opened my eyes to the world.” She moved to Sacramento in 1978, and spent 30 years working for Yolo County, retiring as a manager in 2009. She remains a dedicated farm worker activist who continues telling the movement’s story, and especially the Filipinos’ contributions.
