March for Justice: Tobaccoville to Reynolds Tobacco Headquarters in Winston-Salem, NC

March 31, the 83rd anniversary of Cesar Chavez’s birth, couldn’t have been a better day to march in solidarity with tobacco farmworkers. In the cool morning, a group gathered in rural Tobaccoville, North Carolina. The air was thick with roasting tobacco from Reynolds’ massive processing plant. Overlooking the miles of fence surrounding the plant, we put our feet to the pavement and began our 15 mile march along the country road.
