The UFW Minneapolis Boycott Office (a.k.a. Twin Cities Boycott Office) was part of a nationwide series of boycotts that the United Farm Workers of America spearheaded during the mid 1960s and 1970s. These boycotts alerted the national consumer of the grape and lettuce strikes that had erupted in California, Texas, Arizona and other states. The main duties of the Minneapolis office were to enlist support for the striking farm workers by soliciting donations, spreading information and organizing marches and rallies. Boycott activities were focused in the Twin Cities area with the main office in Minneapolis.

The materials in this collection represent the efforts of the Twin Cities Boycott Office to aid the migrant workers and to promote the work of the UFW. They contain fliers, correspondence, contact lists, newsletters, and publications.
