Today is César Estrada Chávez birthday (March 31, 1927 – April 23, 1993) was a Mexican American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta founded the United Farm Workers. Did much for organized labor.
I was on a organizing drive in 2004 in Corona, California and had a chance to coordinate a group of volunteers from the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
