Hoyer Statement on César Chávez Day



WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on César Chávez Day, which is tomorrow March 31:
“Today I join in celebrating the life and legacy of César Chávez, whose co-founding and leadership of the United Farm Workers helped raise the voices of millions of Latino agricultural workers. He fought for their rights and stood up for the dignity of their work. Over the course of his journey, Chávez marched, fasted, wrote, and spoke truth to power to win safe and fair working conditions, better pay, freedom from discrimination, and wider opportunities for all workers to achieve the American Dream. As one of our civil rights giants, he continues to be a role model for young Latinos and all Americans who, when faced with adversity and wanting to improve their communities, draw strength from his example and legacy.”
