Share ::
The deeds of American farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist César E. Chávez continue to impact labor unions today. Beginning with his involvement in the barrio-based Community Service Organization and later founding the United Farm Workers, Chavez and his pro-union stance improved workers’ rights in both wage and treatment. Starting at 11 a.m. today, take part in a march at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW). Then attend a festival featuring food, exhibits, a concert with Cultura Fuerte, En-Joy and Antonio Reyna, and a special talk by United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta. All the events are free to the public. For more, call 246-2261 or visit cesarchaveznm.org.
