The Life and Legacy of Cesar Chavez

Civil rights activist and labor leader Cesar Estrada Chavez was responsible for many of the labor codes - the protections, benefits, and the right to organize - that workers benefit from today in the United States. He championed the use of nonviolent tactics in labor advocacy and in 1968, his nascent union, the United Farm Workers of America, led one of the most successful boycotts in U.S. history - the boycott of all California table grapes. However, he worked for more than higher wages, better hours and working conditions for laborers; he worked to improve the dilemmas faced by farm families outside the workplace. Today, the Cesar Chavez Foundation continues his work for better housing, healthcare and education for Latino families. This March 31, let us pay tribute to the life and legacy of Cesar Chavez, born on this day in 1927.
