Cesar Chavez Day (US)
One of the most iconic labor organizers and civil rights activists in American history, Cesar Chavez (1927-1993) co-founded the United Farm Workers (UFW) with fellow organizer Dolores Huerta in 1962. Originally of Mexican-American origin, Chavez was a farm worker himself before turning to activism and securing official recognition for UFW as the collective bargaining agent for 50,000 field workers in California and Florida during the 1970s. Renowned for his grassroots approach to labor activism and Hispanic empowerment, Chavez is credited with popularizing the slogan "Si, se puede" ("Yes we can") and was awarded the US Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously in 1994. In 2014 President Barack Obama proclaimed March 31 as a federal commemorative holiday in the United States, marking the date of Chavez's birth. Numerous American parks, streets, and schools throughout the country bear his name.
