2nd Annual Cannery Workers Celebration

It wasn't that long ago, in South San Diego, Barrio Logan, there was one business that dominated the area - the tuna/cannery industry. The tuna ships are long gone and the cannery workers became a forgotten people, that was until the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), San Diego Chapter, and the Port of San Diego decided it was time to recognize this cornerstone of the community.
Under the guidance of Tom Martinez, Frank Sarmiento of LCLAA, Helen Chavez of El Gran Taco (who donated the food), Tony Millan cannery workers came together and celebrated the 2nd Annual Cannery Workers Labor Day Celebration. The canery workers celebrated, enjoyed the entertainment and food, but mostly the workers renewed old friendships and reminisced.
Following up on the success of this celebration the organizers are now planning fund-raising dances and continued work towar their main goal of getting a statue at Crosby Street Park dedicated to the cannery workers in recognition of their contributions to the community.
