Cesár Chavéz: Union Activist & Organizer

While most Americans are familiar with the civil rights work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his contemporary Cesár Estrada Chavéz, was also one of the leading civil rights organizers of the 20thcentury.

Chavéz came from a family of migrant farm workers. He would go on to to teach himself the philosophy, strategy and ideas of great thinkers and lead one of the nations most vital workers movements.

A veteran of the U.S. Navy, Chavéz devoted his life to improving the lives of workers and would create the National Farm Workers Association later renamed United Farm Workers union (UFW).

The legacy of Cesár Chavéz and Fernando Chavéz is one that dovetails very well with the pro-worker commitments of attorneys at GWC Injury Lawyers.
