Back in college, I had the privilege of seeing Cesar Chávez speak. It’s a moment that, years later, remains with me. If ever I was in the presence of a saint, it was that moment. Today we celebrate Cesar Chávez Day in California. It’s a holiday that is now celebrated in eight states and destined to become a national holiday — deservedly so. The best way to celebrate is to learn more about Cesar Chávez’s life, his work and the non-violent, struggle for social justice.
¡Sí, se puede! Yes, we can!
