In the CFT-organized March for California’s Future, six “core
marchers” walked 365 miles from Bakersfield to Sacramento over
the course of 48 days. Putting their lives on hold, they braved
the elements, sleeping in churches, schools, and RV parks.
Throughout California’s great Central Valley — home to people who
work the fields as well as legislators elected in small towns who
demand budget cuts and oppose tax increases — the marchers talked
to people and listened to personal stories of economic hardship.
