Farm worker Hall of Fame



The PPEP Farmworker Hall of Fame was created in the 1980’s for the purpose of honoring those workers that toil the fields to put food on our tables. Like many other Hall of Fame, our Hall of Fame has its stars in Cesar E. Chavez and Dolores Huerta. Also, housed there is the famed 1957 Chevy school bus named “La Tortuga” so named by its early Bracero Migrant students. 在 1967, 博士. John David Arnold the founder’s main role was to drive, teach, and be the mechanic aboard La Tortuga. PPEP, 公司. got its name “portable” because the school bus became a school on wheels. Its motto is Si Se Pudo! Or yes we can.

今天, the museum houses memorabilia of Cesar Chavez such as his ring and favorite baseball bat given to the striking miners in Ajo, 亞利桑那. There are three glass display cases full of memorabilia from Arizona, California, 而在全球範圍內履行這些移民和季節性農業工人這一鬥爭不僅要養家糊口, but the rest of us as well.
