In 1990 one of Texas's Levis Strauss factories closed leaving behind hundreds of workers, mostly women, without their livelihood. To many, it was the only job they ever had. From their loss a support group was born. A group that later became a center to empower women in San Antonio, Texas through education, social work and community activism. These are "The Women of Fuerza Unida" Ford & Lincoln Mercury 2007 "Salute to Education" Honorees.
