The United Farm Workers and the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation are proud to support the grassroots efforts of the “Cesar E. Chavez National Holiday Coalition”. Go to petition page at:
http://www.ufwaction.org/campaign/chavezholiday/ UFW Founder Cesar E. Chavez, stood as one of the heroic figures of the 20th century who inspired millions in our nation into action for economic and social justice, civil rights and political empowerment. He led the historic non-violent movement for farm workers’ rights and was dedicated to building a movement of poor working people that extended beyond the fields and into cities and towns across the nation.
The legacy of Cesar E. Chavez, like the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., serves to educate, inspire, and empower people from all walks of life. Cesar Chavez is a role model for all Americans and the generations to come.
Ask Congress to designate March 31 as Cesar E. Chavez Day to ensure Chavez’ legacy is recognized and celebrated throughout our nation with a federal paid holiday and a day of service and learning in our public schools.
