Quote: “We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community…Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” (Cesar E. Chavez, March 31, 1927- April 23, 1993)
Dear faculty, staff, and students,

Chavez employed nonviolent means to bring attention to the plight of farmworkers, and formed both the National Farm Workers Association, which later became United Farm Workers. As a labor leader, Chavez led marches, called for boycotts and went on several hunger strikes. Cesar Chavez died on April 23, 1993, in San Luis, Arizona. Cesar E. Chavez is an American hero.
