CESAR CHAVEZ MARCH At SOUTHSIDE PARK

Article

Every spring hundreds of Labor Activists join the Latino Community to celebrate the life, struggles and victories of one of our nation’s most influential Latino Labor leaders, Cesar Chavez.

Cesar Chavez came to prominence as an organizer for the United Farm Workers. His non-violent protests against the injustices and human rights violations of his fellow workers, brought about global awareness and international support that forced change upon the farming industry, and the treatment of farm workers across the nation.

On Saturday, March 28th we will gather with hundreds of fellow activists at Southside Park, 7th & T Streets in Downtown Sacramento for the 15th Annual Sacramento Cesar Chavez Day March.  Folks will begin gathering around 9:00am, and the March will begin at 10:00 am.

Come Join Your Fellow Union Brother’s & Sister’s as we march in support of the struggles and victories of Cesar Chavez & the entire Labor Movement!

Please Bring Your Local Union’s Banners & join us in the march for Workers Equality & Justice!

The march will conclude at Cesar Chavez Park at 9th & J Street, with a huge celebration featuring: Inspirational Speeches, Live Music, and Great Food & Dancing.

Plan to bring your children & entire family and use this historic march as an educational opportunity to teach them about Union Solidarity, Workers Rights, and the value of building coalitions in support of dignity, respect, a voice in the workplace, and our community!
