Cesar Chavez is known as the founder of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW). He was a tireless advocate for nonviolent social change, and dedicated his life to working in service to others. For more than three decades Chavez led the first successful farm workers union in American history, achieving dignity, respect, fair wages, medical coverage, pension benefits and humane living conditions as well as countless other rights and protections for the hundreds of thousands of farm workers. His union efforts brought about the passage of the passage of the California Agricultural Labor Relations Act. Today it remains as the only law in the nation that protects the rights of farm workers to unionize.
Please join us in honoring his legacy and to pay tribute to one of the heroic figures of our time. Ventura College MECHA is proud to celebrate his day on Wednesday, March 30, 2011, from noon to 2 p.m. in the Quad area. Join us to hear speakers and enjoy food, music, and Folklorico.
