“I think that leadership is based on commitment, and it’s a commitment to people as human beings. When I was a poor farmworker, I didn’t know I was poor, because everyone was in the same situation. I went to school in raggedy pants and no shoes, but when I grew up and learned that I was poor, it was no longer acceptable. I think we could say the same about farmworker health – we’re human beings and we deserve health care at the same level as everyone else.”
