Today, we celebrate and honor Cesar Chavez, an American labor leader and civil rights activist, and his commitment to social justice. Chavez’s work and that of the United Farm Workers — the union he helped found — improved pay and working conditions for farm laborers in the 1960s and 1970s, and paved the way for landmark legislation in 1975 that codified and guaranteed agricultural workers’ right to unionize, bargain collectively with their employers and vote in secret-ballot elections in California.
