This thesis examines the work of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) in the eastern Coachella Valley between 1965 and 1973. I reconstruct the major events that occurred in Coachella and argue that the valley's climate and diverse farm worker population contributed to a unique set of labor organizing experiences. These circumstances in Coachella affected the grape harvest and were key in both the success and demise of UFW efforts in Coachella.
