At a glance

  • Vice President Kamala Harris claimed that she never ate grapes until she was in her 20s because she respected the United Farm Workers’ boycotts.
  • “This sounds quaint, and so I’m reluctant to say it, but, you know, I didn’t eat a grape until I was in my 20s…” Harris said. “It was absolutely ingrained so deeply in me: Never cross a picket line.”
  • Problem is, the UFW’s third and longest boycott spanned the entirety of her 20s – running from 1984 to 2000, when Harris turned 36.
