The National Farm Workers Association (NFWA) was founded in 1962. In 1966 it affiliated with the Agricultural Workers Committee to form the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee (UFWOC). In 1973 the UFWOC became the United Farm Workers, AFL-CIO. Cesar Chavez led the farm workers from 1962 until his death in 1993. The papers of the Washington State Boycott Office of the United Farm Workers primarily record the 1970s activities of the UFW's Seattle support groups. These activities included the office's involvement in the UFW's lettuce and grape boycotts. The Seattle group also compiled information on growers and legislation pertaining to farm workers in the state of Washington.
