    Voices of Change—the 63 Transcribed Interviews of the People’s Oral History Project, Monterey County

    The book, Voices of Change, is not all about leafletting in front of the factory gate at dawn. There’s another slice of life here. It’s the real deal, salted with a dash of humor, peppered with a pinch of wisdom and a rub of romance. See what Dolores Huerta, Holly Near, Marshall Ganz and Dr. Charlie Clements have to say about Voices of Change. Oral interviews were conducted with local risk-takers, troublemakers, change agents, and community and labor union organizers who have been active across the Salinas Valley and Monterey Peninsula since 1934. These stories are told in the context of the importance of effective and nonviolent community organizing and progressive advocacy that promotes personal and institutional change in human affairs. Lessons learned apply globally.

An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
