Poster printed with yellow, brown, green, and orange ink on white paper. A graphic of an agricultural lettuce field fills the upper two-thirds of the page. The top half of a yellow sun with jagged rays is visible just over the field at upper right in an orange sky. The sun is printed with a United Farm Workers eagle symbol and the text, "Sí Se Puede ~ It Can Be Done" in an arch along the top. Several figures in salmon-colored outfits work among the rows of lettuce throughout the center of the page. A group portrait of men, women, and children in green, white, and salmon-colored outfits fills the bottom third of the page above the text "Boycott Lettuce and Grapes"
