Background
Lupe Anguiano was born on March 12, 1929. For more than fifty years she has worked for the equality of all people. She was born in Colorado. Her father worked for the railroad and in the summers the family lived in California, picking fruit and walnuts. In 1949, she joined Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters. As a nun, she worked for fifteen years to improve the social, educational, and economic conditions of poor people throughout the United States. Anguiano was also a United Farm Workers' volunteer, working directly under the direction of Cesar Chavez in Delano, California. In the late 60s, she was assigned to lead what became the successful grape boycott in Michigan.
