César Chávez Day

Collections

On March 31, we celebrate César Chávez Day. Chávez, a civil rights and labor activist, co-founded the United Farm Workers Union and used nonviolent protests to fight for the rights of laborers. Although it is not a federal holiday, President Obama has urged all Americans to celebrate Chávez’s life and legacy through acts of service on March 31.
