PCUN’s 30th Anniversary Celebration- 9/17 , 6pm @ SEIU Portland


Message from our President Ramon Ramirez

Dear Ally,

“Do we need to have an organization of reforestation and farmworkers, yes or no? And are you and yours committed to do this?”

After 8 intense years of providing legal advice and representation to undocumented workers, this was the questions 80 farmworkers and leaders of the Willamette Valley Immigration Project began to contemplate about 30 years ago. The result—PCUN’s founding convention in September of 1985.

30 years later, PCUN has become a permanent part of Oregon’s history. With its 6500 registered members, it is the largest Latino organization in Oregon and is one of three farmworker unions still alive in our country. Though much has been done to improve the lives of farmworkers, and our commitment has not wavered, we have plenty of unfinished business.Please join us to celebrate this important milestone and hear about our future plans. Thank you.




Ramon Ramirez President of PCUN
