President Obama once stated, “Our world is a better place because Cesar Chavez decided to change it.” Urge President Obama to declare a Cesar Chavez National Day of Service so Americans can honor the legacy of this civil rights and farm labor icon.
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 by signing our petition.
