Cesar Chavez

Cesar Chavez is honored on his birthday, March 31, for being a true hero and a leader of the civil rights movement. As a Latino farm labor leader, and a genuinely religious and spiritual figure, he was one of the greatest community organizers and social entrepreneurs of his time; a true champion of militant nonviolent social change and a crusader for the environment and consumer rights.
