Cesar Chavez worked for farmers lives. He was born March 31,1927 in Yuma, Arizona. He led a grape strike from Delano, California to San Francisco. After the strike conditions for farmers improved. We thought it was so cool that he was a vegetarian. Sadly, he died on April 23, 1993, San Luis, Arizona. He was 66 years old.

Cesar Chavez inspiring story

Cesar worked in the fields with other immigrants from Mexico. They worked hard but never felt like they got fair pay or housing. They decided to strike by not picking grapes on a very large field of grapes. This hurt the business of wine and jelly, and things began to change for the better. Chavez helped with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness using non-violence.
