Bottom right edge has "(c) RCAF" in black.

Poster has a red background with a black eagle silhouette in the center. Over the eagle in white outlined letters is, "ufw community meeting." Below the eagle is a white banner with "Sunday, Feb. 6, 1977 a.d. 4:00 pm at Newman Ctr. 5900 Newman Court/ Community is invited to meet with u.f.w. organizing committee. the u.f.w. needs your support!!" Below the banner is "boycott gallo! boycott coors!" This poster mentions the two largest consumer boycotts at the time, the UFW one (which was about California lettuce and grapes, including wine from grapes - thus the Gallo reference) and a broader national AFL-CIO boycott of Coors beer for bad labor practices (1978-1987).
