Norma Caballero-Lopez is a Latina, born in Cutler California with 10 other siblings to Mexican immigrants. Her parents came to the United States through an agricultural labor program in 1964, similar to the Bracero Program, and Norma talks about how being a farm worker for the most part of her life has impacted her in the person she is today. Another focus of the film is Norma’s involvement as a Social Worker in the department of Domestic Violence. She explains the hardships of domestic violence and what that looks like, not only in society but also in her own life. Norma is an advocate for women and women’s rights against violence.
