Students Discuss Significance of Cesar Chavez Day
March 30, 2005 4:36 PM
From 1952 to 1962 Cesar Chavez worked for the Community Service Organization. Then in 1962, he left this full time job to contribute all his time creating a union for farm workers. After six months he had recruited more than 300 members of the National Farm Workers Union, as they called it.
California is the only state that recognizes Cesar Chavez for his hard work and dedication to helping farm workers. As Cesar Chavez Day is approaching on March 31, SF State students discuss what Cesar Chavez Day means to them.
