Robyn Rodriguez interviewed for project Welga! Filipino American Stories of the Great Grape Strike of 1965 featured in California Humanities

Professor Rodriguez’s main goal is to bring Filipinos’ leadership and engagement in the Delano Grape Strike to light through the creation of a publicly accessible website which would include 15-20 oral histories and filmed interviews, as well as the collection of photos, documents and other ephemera. 

The project accomplished this goal in their online archive: welgadigitalarchive.omeka.net. They have expanded the scope of the archive to include Filipino American activist histories beyond labor activism associated with the Delano grape strike and the establishment of the UFW, which was the initial focus of The Welga Project.
