Celebrate Cesar Chavez Day!

Happy Cesar Chavez Day!

Did you know Cesar Chavez was one of the greatest labor leaders in the United States? He fought for a better life for migrant farm workers, founded the first successful farm workers' union, and was the president of the United Farm Workers, AFL-CIO. Cesar accomplished this with a philosophy of non-violence.

On September 2, 1994, the Cesar Chavez Holiday bill was signed into law in California. It designated March 31 (or the appropriate Monday or Friday following or preceding that date) as Cesar Chavez Day. It is a state holiday to promote service to the communities of California in honor of Cesar's life and work.
