Dec. 2, 1954 The U.S. Senate votes 65-22 to condemn Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wisc.) for “conduct that tends to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute.” McCarthy was a rabid anti-Communist who falsely accused thousands of Americans, mostly people who supported labor, civil rights and other progressive causes, of being traitors.

The campaign, led by Chavez and Dolores Huerta, the co-founders of the National Farm Workers Association, lasted more than five years and involved hundreds of miles-long marches, nearly month-long hunger strikes and brutal police violence.
