César Chávez Display

Cesar Chavez display caseCésar Chávez was a civil rights hero, a farm labor leader, a religious and spiritual figure, a community organizer, a social entrepreneur, and a crusader for the environment and consumer rights. In 1962, Chávez founded the National Farm Workers Association, later known as the United Farm Workers (UFW).

Chávez died peacefully in his sleep on April 23, 1993, near Yuma, Arizona, a short distance from the small family farm in the Gila River Valley where he was born more than 66 years before.

He was a common man with an uncommon vision that stood for equality, justice, and dignity for all Americans. Today, his universal principles are still as relevant and inspiring for all people as they were during his lifetime.

You will find our display in honor of this great man on the first floor near the elevators.
