Celebrating National Latinx Heritage Month, September 15 to October 15

Cesar ChavezCesar Estrada Chavez was born on March 31, 1927. Cesar Chavez grew up in Arizona, in a small adobe home, where he learned the dishonesty from those with power, influence and money. In 1938, Cesar and his familia moved to California, and they settled in San Jose, where they lived in the barrio called Sal Si Puedes - "Get Out If You Can." Cesar and his familia worked in the fields of California from Brawley to Oxnard, Atascadero, Gonzales, King City, Salinas, McFarland, Delano, Wasco, Selma, Kingsburg, and Mendota. When Cesar was still a child, he did not like school because he only spoke Spanish with his family. However, later in life,  education was his passion. In 1948 Cesar married Helen Fabela. They visited all the California Missions from Sonoma to San Diego for their honeymoon (again the influence of education). Cesar Chavez returned to San Jose where he met and was influenced by Father Donald McDonnell. They talked about farm workers and strikes. In 1962, Cesar founded the National Farm Workers Association, later to become the Union de Campesinos (United Farm Workers).
