Cesar Chavez, directed by Diego Luna, chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leader and labor organizer, Cesar Chavez. Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle for the rights of farm workers. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the system.
Cesar Chavez National Day of Service
Today we remember Chavez not just as a champion for workers’ rights, but as an American hero. On March 31 we honor his legacy and commitment to lending a voice to the voiceless on Cesar Chavez Day, but we seek to take this a step further to a full Day of Service. This day will serve not just to honor and remember the great work of Cesar Chavez, but to continue his central mission: that when workers are treated fairly, everybody benefits.
Join us in urging the President to declare March 31 as the Cesar Chavez National Day of Service.
