Why is Cesar Chavez important?
Where did this holiday originate from?
Cesar Chavez Day VS. Martin Luther King Day
Cesar Chavez Day and MLK Day are both holidays to celebrate someone who positively impacted a certain group of people that did not have equal rights.
On both days, the public learns about each person and what they did and how they impacted people.
People also do some service projects that help people have more of an understanding of each person, and what they have done.
There are many businesses and schools closed on the holiday.
Both holidays are celebrated by many people other than the ones impacted, Latinos: Chavez, African Americans: MLK.
MLK is celebrated and is a national holiday in every state.
