ADIOS AMOR - Years before Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta launched the United Farm Workers, Maria Moreno picked up the only weapon she had—her voice—and became an outspoken leader in an era when women were relegated to the background. The first farm worker woman in America to be hired as a union organizer, Maria’s story was silenced and her legacy buried, until now.

"The film is highly recommended for use in history, political science, civics and government, as well as ethnic studies and American studies courses ... However, its greatest strength is as an engaging portrait of a politician and community organizer who, despite losses of life--stolen through racist violence--and losses in politics--at the hands of racist voters--persists to find success wherever he can, remaining true to his 'duty to continue,' for 'Dem Spiro, Spero.'" - Gisèle Tanasse, Librarian, University of California Berkeley - Educational Media Reviews Online (EMRO)
