Peter Velasco has served in a number of positions in the UFW. He worked as the Stockton, California Field Office Director, as the director of the Strike Defense Fund, was a board member of the Farm Workers Credit Union, and the National Executive Board. He and his wife Dolores Ann also worked on the US Senate campaign of Tom Hayden in 1976. Pete Velasco died in 1995.

Part 2 of this collection includes materials relating to both the United Farm Workers movement and to Peter Velasco’s life more broadly, covering the span of 1942-2000.
