Does "turned to radical groups for leadership" mean "sought leadership from radical groups"?

******************
Unemployed march, Camden, New Jersey. The year 1934 saw majoy strikes in Teledo, Minneapolis, and San Francisco, as well as a national textile strike, as workers turned to radical groups for leadership. Unemployed workers supported the strikers rather than take jobs as strikebreakers.

@oristarA,
Actually.... the word "turned" is a verb. It implies that they changed direction. They were doing one thing for leadership... then the changed their direction to seek leadership from radical groups.

@maxdancona,
Turn can also be a noun. A change of direction being such an example.

@Sturgis,
I believe the word "turned" is clearly the preterite form of the verb "to turn".

@maxdancona,
Quite possibly. The intricacies of grammar are not my strong suit.
