The files contained within the UFW Philadelphia boycott collection, parts 1 and 2, reflect the activities of the Philadelphia office with organizing local support of the national boycott of California table grapes, lettuce, and later, Gallo wine. The boycott office primarily concerned itself with organizing letter writing campaigns to the growers, distributors (with special attention given to A&P), and public officials, and checking the local stores for boycotted grapes and lettuce. Attempts were made to influence these markets and the public not to purchase grapes and lettuce. The national boycott was organized by the United Farm Workers located in California.
