The Virginia Boycott office was set up by the United Farm Workers to handle the organization of boycotted products and/or establishments in the State of Virginia and its surrounding region. The office dealt mainly with the boycotting of stores, which sold non-union products or were involved in anti-union activities. As well, the office involved itself with other UFW interests including migrant workers, illegal aliens, pesticide control, and the lobbying for or against specific legislation being proposed at the state and federal levels.
